Thats a good idea vico1 because the beginners class can get u hurt in a hurry like when a fat old guy falls right in front of u or some crazzzed noob takes you from behind. thats good advice.

If you do not already have a number & the correct color background on your number plate, it is a lot easier & much cheaper to race the beginner class. There are usually quite a fast guy in beginner. The class is made for riders new to racing, not new to riding. In beginner, you use electrical tape for numbers, in all the other classes you have to meet specs.

You can not just slap any number on your bike. You have to submit your choices far enough in advance to be able to order graphics or wait until race day & buy numbers & correct background from venders there. To me, it just adds extra stress getting ready for the race doing it like that.

Does FTR have transponders that record time? If so why so strict on numbers...

if they do it by sight scorers then I can see it.... really makes it a hassel for guys just doing one or two events...

Well put Mark.

I had a lot of fun with the little bit of racing that I could afford.
Got a lot of "Where the hell did he come from???"
Take that any way you please.

I'm not the FTR prez so can't answer that.

Yes, they do use transponders. Use to be $25 but not sure now. Just zip tie it good. They last just about forever.

Yes, it is a big hassle

One thing I forgot to say, You can borrow a transponder from a friend. You just need to get it programed to you before the race

In beginner class you have to have a white background with black numbers. No need to order any graphics for I have the luxory of making mine at work. Transponders are $30 at sign up. Beg class is 1.5hrs vs 2hrs for all others.

Love the racing chatter!

The new technology transponders are a small strip like transponders on merchandise in a store - this will make racing much cheaper. SERA already has incorporated it into the kids races, and I believe nationals are using it now too. Hopefully soon everyone will adopt the new technology - still works with the old transponder readers so clubs don't have to invest in new tech - just start handing out the new transponders for $5 a piece instead of 25!

Also, the number plate thing - it depends on the club. When I worked the hard labor creek HS all riders in all classes had a simple piece of cardstock with a sharpied number on it. made my job a little tough as the handwritten backup to the check, especially after a few laps and the mud was covering half the numbers..

Just make sure to check the sponsoring Club's rules before heading out the door - and bring plenty of cash, you'll want a race shirt. plus that helps out the club!

I have always thought of ADV as the place where old racer migrated after years of going fast.... not as a breeding/proving ground for new racers...

Good for you guys...
