September, a Month Full of Races on the Iberian Peninsula

Posted on Posted in Cycling, Swimming, Triathlon

There were all kinds of timing events this September, and once again, we lived up to our promise: #WeTimeEverything!

 

The number and the diversity of events in Macsha’s yearly calendar is huge, however, this month stands out as the most intense one. It goes without saying that this doesn’t slow down Macsha’s team. Every weekend, our team of Barcelona Timers, ​​travels to towns and cities in Catalonia, to do what they know best: get impeccable results.

Here’s what the main events in September are all about:

 

GRAN FONDO LA FALLA

On Sunday the 3rd, we started a new cycling challenge called “the fire route”, in quite a unique setting, the Pyrenees. There were two routes through the beautiful village of Barruera and its surroundings: a long-distance race (133 km, 2.950m +) and medium-distance race (85km and 1,725m +).

 

 

We timed this event with a cycling set up: at the start/finish line, we set up our One4All X8 and 6 aerial antennas that were mounted onto a metal arc. At each checkpoint there was a One4all 4.0 combined with 4 side antennas.

 

 

TRIATLON TOSSA DE MAR

Last weekend, we’ve been to Tossa de Mar’s Triathlon with two distances: Sprint and Olympic, according to the regulation of the Catalan Triathlon Federation. The participants had the possibility to compete either individually or in a relay race. The rain hasn’t stopped the entire afternoon, but Macsha’s team worked hard so that the participants who reach the goal get their deserved results.

 

This was the set up: at the water point, we used lateral and ground antennas. In the floor antennas case we set up two 2m lines plus two lateral antennas on each side, to reinforce the timing because of the water. At the checkpoints, the entrance and the exit from the Boxes, we used: 4m ground antennas with two lateral antennas on one side, and 2m ground antennas with 2 lateral antennas on the other side. At the 2m finish line we used ground antennas and two lateral antennas. We used One4All 3.0 and 4.0 for timing.
