In an effort to support Race Organizers and Commissaires, and produce better events, the ABA has recently acquired some timing equipment and software – a component of our new Edmonton and Calgary Race Trailers. The equipment purchased will enhance the Finish Lynx camera the ABA currently owns, and also provide organizers and commissaires of Mountain Bike, Cyclo-cross, and Road events with tools to create fast, accurate, and professional race documents. Equipment and software purchased is from Summit Timing and Zone4, and is suitable for all Mountain Bike and Cyclo-cross races, in addition to Road Time Trials. In order to familiarize folks with the equipment and software, the ABA will be hosting two training sessions:
Where and When: Edmonton – Saturday, April 24th, 10am – 1 pm, Percy Page Centre
Calgary – Monday, April 26th, 6pm – 9pm, Bob Niven Training Centre at Canada Olympic Park
Who should come: Race Organizers, Commissaires, Technical Delegates, Volunteers, anyone interested in on-line registration and race timing!
What will we learn? The session will cover Zone4 online registration, followed by creating start lists, timing a race, and producing results using Zone4 software and Summit timers. Manual back-up timing will also be covered. Use of the Finish Lynx camera will not be covered in these sessions – if you interested in learning about the Finish Lynx system, please contact the ABA.
The sessions will be led by Andy Holmwood, former ABA Technical Director and current Timing Guy for Biathlon Alberta, and are offered to ABA members at no cost. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
