1. Each rider must dismount off of the bike and run or walk across the timing mat. (failure to do so may result in DQ)

2. Each racer must have the number plate mounted and visible on the front of the bike.

3. Once you cross through the timing area you may get back on the bike and continue back out on the course or teams may exchange the timing chip within the designated transition area. (all chips must be exchanged within the transition area, failure to do so may result in DQ)
