Live Timing at the HSBC UK National Downhill Series Presented by GT Bicycles.
Action Sports Timing delivered a World first in 2016 to offer live timing for not only the race but for also for all of practice at the National Series . That meant that every practice run you take will be recorded, that data will then be available to the riders at the touch of a finger via their smartphones.
Set up the same as for the UCi World Cup downhill races using the latest Active Pro Transponders with satellite & GPS synchronised timing to produce results down to 1/100 second. For added security a second backup system using Tag Heuer timing equipment will run in parallel.
The live results will be all be displayed on a big screen in the finish arena and on the National Series website where you can also leave comments or share direct on Facebook and Twitter.
With two satellite systems onsite to stream live the latest results and news from the events, means anyone in the world you can tune in to watch the rider’s live times for all of Saturdays practice, Sunday’s seeding runs and the final race run.
Event Director Si Paton,”This is a World first for Downhill Mountain Biking having live timing from the start of practice right through to the riders final race runs. This also allows us to add an extra layer of seeding into the event by recording the riders practice times. AST will then collate the data and seed the riders for Sunday mornings seeding runs from the riders practice times on Saturday.
