As stated in the title. Because we've had a rash of bikes that have had bad/intermittent transponders, it's putting a major strain on our scorers and track personnel. Be VERY aware of the rule book as it regards to race numbers. If your tail section is too small for proper readable side numbers, then numbers on the side of your fairings will be required. If our scorers cannot make out your numbers from the scoring building, on the left side of the track across from the start-finish line, you will not be scored if your transponder is intermittent! It's as simple as that. Bad transponder, coupled with "stylized numbers" or "Numbers that look good to match the bike" that are hard to read from 30' from the track, will result in last place, or a DNF. We've been very lenient in the past, and we can't afford to be any longer. Please arrange to have numbers that are by the book, or fail tech. Chapter 4 of our rulebook explains it all in great detail.
