Timed Results / Timing System

El Tour’s Official Timer is On Your Left Fitness and Timing.  Your time is recorded when your HANDLEBAR number crosses the finish line.  Be sure you mount this number properly or your time may not be recorded- do not fold it, bend it, cut it down or put tape over it. Hang it off your handlebar horizontally – DO NOT tape it to the stem/tube.  It will be in your rider packet/envelope.

Recumbents and handcycles must mount the “handlebar” number on the frame of the bike towards the front on the undercarriage. TANDEMS must mount BOTH numbers on the front handlebars.

The Official rider number to be pinned to your back will be marked with your estimated medallion color in the finish chute. 

Finish Line Chute volunteers will mark your bib/rider number for your medallion. The final determination of your medallion is your finish time, not the mark on your bib/rider number. For safety purposes, please MOVE OUT OF THE FINISH CHUTE area once your rider number is marked due to the continued flow of fast-approaching finishers.

START TIME IS “GUN TIME.” This means that everyone’s time starts when the gun goes off at the start. Your start time is NOT when you cross the start line.
