2016 Cyclocross Race Timing Chip Policy
For the 2016 cyclocross racing season, both MFG Cyclocross and Cross Revolution will be using the Dual Tag timing chip. This chip has been invented and manufactured by our finish line production partner Dave Wamsley of Center Event.

In past seasons, timing chips have been purchased, built, and provided to racers at no charge. For the 2016 season, all chips will be distributed for $5 and are guaranteed to work for 1 season. In future seasons, chips must be tested at the first race and if they don’t work, a new chip must be purchased.

Please note, this is not a rental charge. The chip is yours to keep. This cost is a direct pass through cost to Center Event for materials and labor.
If you currently have timing chips, they cannot be used for the 2016 season and need to be returned for re-formatting. You can send old chips back to Center Event here:

Center Event
11232 21st Ave SW
Seattle, WA 98146

Chips can be purchased at the first race of the season.

Look forward to seeing you next Sunday.
