Timers in Action, March 2014!

EVENT: Enduropale – L’ Enduro du Touquet
DATE: 8 – 9 February 2014
COUNTRY: France

Le Touquet by Macca (Our Timing Expert)

It really has been one of the hardest events in which I have been fortunate to participate. Not only the cold and the rain made working 4 days on the beach more complicated, but to these climatic conditions we also must add the wind gusts that reached the speed of 100 Km/h just before the departure of the Enduropale (Main Event).

It has been an experience of Extreme Timing, but thanks to the expertise of the team of experienced Timers and, of course, MACSHA technology used for timing, we could solve and provide great timing service to the biggest motorcycle race in the World! The result? 100% effective in timing over 2,000 pilots.

From the technical point of view, for this complex task we used 2 One4All UL systems and 1 One4All ES System with a total of 6 Side Antennas (SA) and 6 Aereal Antennas (AA). The distribution was as follows: 3 SA on the side of the arc of arrival, 3 other SA on the other side of the arc and 6 AA over the bar of the arc. The connection of the antennas with One4All was distributed: 3 SA + 1 AA with one UL System, the other 3 SA + 1 AA with the second UL System and finally the remaining 4 AA bar with the ES System.

In 2015 we will be the ones to time Enduropale – L’ Enduro du Touquet again, hope to see you there!

Overview of Enduro del Verano (EDV) by CHONIK (Our Timing Expert)

The preparations were very hard because the weather did not accompany us. But on the day of the competition, the weather was at its best.

We had planned the Finished line with 3 One4all systems of which 1 was UL.
The arrangement of the antennas on the finish line was:
1 – The One4all UL was communicating with 4 Aereal Antennas (AA) located on the top of the arc of arrival, and both One4all XL systems communicating to 2 Side Antennas (SA) plus 2 Aereal Antennas (AA). We distributed it this way so that the XL could function at the same speed as the UL resulting in 100% effectiveness.

2 – The bikes and quads had three chips (MT_Motors) on the side and in the front number holder)

3 – We’ve put a checkpoint at a strategic point of the course to take control of any vehicle that would cut the way. This allowed the organizer precise control of all participants. The equipment used was a One4all Aereal XL with 4 Antennas (AA) and 2 Side Antennas (SA)

So it is for the second consecutive year, the Association “MTB Bella Vista” performed with great success and excellent call this “pre-season” race which serves many riders to measure their performance and make the necessary “adjustments” before the competitive tournament of correntino mtb.

With spectacular landscapes, the city of Bella Vista received 190 bikers who dared on the circuit all types of irregularities: from mud, to sand, rural roads, natural slopes, rock formations, roads among lush vegetation, etc, but always surrounded with the beautiful river of Paraná.

The Correntino MTB Championship is without a doubt one of the most important in the country, despite its limited distribution outside of northern Argentina. The expectation for 2014 it is huge. For the second year, we entrusted Cronomet for the timing and classification of the whole project: 11 rounds will be spread throughout the province of Corrientes. In 2013, a total of more than 1800 bikers will come across those 9 dates, mostly from Corrientes, and to a lesser extent Paraguay, Uruguay and Brazil.
