The Cedar Hill Race Festival will once again use chip timing in 2018 but this year all racers will need to either provide their own timing transponder or rent one at the event for $5 per day. You can also pre-pay for a rental in advance via the event registration page on bikereg.
These are the same timing transponder chips as those used at the 2017 Cedar Hill Race Festival, Matrix Challenge, Tuesday night crits, and Thursday night Fair Park crits as well as at all North Texas Cyclocross Syndicate races in the fall of 2017. From what we understand a number of the road races & crits in North Texas and even across Texas plan to implement this same timing chip system this year so if you don’t already own your own timing transponder chip you may want to buy one as the standard rental rate will be $5 per day.
Chips are about $67 to purchase and have a 5-year warranty from the manufacturer. They can be purchased from our timing partner, Race Day System’s website.
