Second Gear Club News Release - September 1, 2016

Big changes for the remaining two races which are part of the 2016 CMA Alberta Hare Scramble Championship (AHSC) and SGC Hare Scramble Series. 
We are proud to announce that the Club has purchased a new scorekeeping/timing system from Moto-Tally.  Funds from the Blackfoot Direct Husqvarna Raffle were used to acquire the new scanning equipment. 

Exciting features to this new system from Moto-Tally include that it;

  • Specializes in hare scrambles/cross-country/enduro/ISDE qualifiers, hare and hound events
  • Uses RFID/transponders (non-powered)
  • Provides onsite scoreboard for spectators with rolling live results by class at check/finish-line
  • Provides racer display advising class, current position and time between you and racer ahead in your class
  • Provides quick site registration with an easy swipe of your helmet once you have been set up with RFID
  • Handles race bike number reservation (note that for this year, we’ll use current barcode numbers)
  • Provides additional sponsor field that will appear on results listings beside your name and position

This system will be a huge time saver administratively with;

  • Online Pre-registration that is automatically downloaded to race database (hopefully available for Bow Ridge Challenge Hare Scramble, Wildhorse)
  • Results that can be uploaded and posted immediately as soon as internet can be accessed.
Registration on site for Sep 3-4 Moose Mountain HS sponsored by Pro-Action Suspension.  Race information for all participants in 2016 CMA HS events has been upload to new database.   BRING YOUR HELMET . We are in a bit of a learning curve and will do our very best for a smooth transfer.
Second Gear Club would like to take this time to thank Monty Brown (Ghost Riders Club) for providing the scoring system that the Second Gear Club has utilized for several years and to Mitchell Brown for his valued participation for the setup and execution.
Mitchell has been an outstanding asset to the club in all aspects of race setup and organization.  We wish him all the best as he moves forward in his future endeavors.
See you all at the races!  Detailed information for this weekend’s race will be posted later today.
