My assigned number doesn’t match my bike number. Do i need a new bike number and a certain color background?
No, Secca will provide a helmet sticker to be placed on the left side of your helmet for scoring to see. We do have suggested color backgrounds that are industry known… Red = A, Yellow = B, White/Black = C

If my scores are messed up what do I do?
First, be sure you have your right transponder and number on your helmet. Next, follow up with scoring (not while bikes are coming through) and let them know your name and number to investigate. Be sure to not walk up to the scoring tent with your helmet.

No pit riding at any events by minors. Adults using bikes, golf carts, etc to get from spot to spot must be 1st gear or 5 mph. Racers keep your bike at your trailer until time to go to the start line/riders meeting. All adult bikes must shut off on the starting line prior to the green flag. After the race please ride back to your trailer or away from the finish line. Do not park near the scoring tent or walk up to the tent (especially with your helmet on.) Parents, please help keep kids away from moving vehicles when on bicycles.
