The wait is finally over, as the new team behind this years Southern XC series have now launched their 2016 online entry and timing system.
Southern XC have today announced they will be using the increasingly popular German 'Race Results' system and this extract taken from SouthernXC.net describes how the new system works and also what exciting benefits it will bring...
'We have been able to make a few improvements over the off season and the most major of these comes in the form of our own RFID chip system to record your lap information and results. This will mean even more accurate timing and live results throughout the day. We have managed to maintain the entry fees for the 2nd year running but to help us support this significant investment we are asking you to purchase a number board for the series, it'll cost you only £2.00 and will be paid at time of entry, either online or on the day. This fee will not be applicable to the U12 and U9 races, we will support the cost of these numbers. The number board you purchase will be your for all rounds you attend so please remember to bring it with you to each race, if you do forget another number can be allocated to you but unfortunately it will cost another £2.00.
If you enter all 7 rounds by clicking 'Yes Sign Me Up To All Rounds!' on the online entry before the entry for round one closes on the 17th March, you'll get entry into 7 rounds for the cost of 6!!
Fat Bikes.... You will see we have asked on online entry if you're going to be racing a Fat Bike with us in 2016, this is just for fun but your average lap time will be entered in to separate Fat Bike only results and series results will be collected with a prize for the winner.'
