In June 2008 ATTA expanded its timing system at events to include 'chip' timing. Many riders will be familiar with similar identification and timing systems used in Triathlons and mass participation events. The system we are using, MyLaps Prochip, is an active transponder system (it uses small battery-powered transmitting devices attached to the bike).
We back-up the electronic system with manual timing so no rider completing a race has failed to receive a finish time. The system is versatile and we are continuing work on our own implementation of its potential features. Throughout events progress results are posted to the 'net.
From mid-2013 we have begun to use a variation on the
classic Prochip, the Prochip Flex. It functions in the same way as the Classic but its function is based on a subscription for a 1-, 2- or 5-year period. ATTA will progressively replace its Classic units as they reach the end of their lives with 5-year Flex subscriptions. The advantage of the Flex is that, for the duration of the subscription, the unit carries an unlimited warranty.
It is possible to purchase the Flex units with subscriptions for all periods, online from MyLaps.
Alternatively, we will usually have some of the 5-year subscription units available, at cost, to ATTA members.
A $5 levy is added to the race entry fee for transponders loaned to riders.
It is possible to use the transponder wherever the MyLaps ProChip system is in use; riders who have, for example, purchased a personal transponder from WCMCC can use it in ATTA events.
