Oregon Enduro Series - Bend
We have had our timing issues, but it is not from a lack of trying. We have put a lot of thought and resources into building the best timing system possible. We had no other enduro events that we could look at or call for timing advice when we started. We came up to the best case scenario for timing set out to develop it ourselves. We wanted help build the sport of Enduro in North America and timing was the one thing we wanted to have be the best in the world. We set out to build a system that had: - Accurate results to the thousandth of a second - Remove human error - Live results at each stage - Live combined results in the Expo Area We accomplished this from most of 2014 on a constant basis! -We only had one short timing delay in 2014 (first race of the year at Hood River). -The first year we used Jaguar (2013) we were set up for issues with an undeveloped, over complicated system that we tried to run ourselves with proper support on the software. When we started doing enduro races in North America, we tried a few options in the first year. After over two years of research, we invested all of our resources in a chip timing system, Jaguar. The company claimed to be able to build a software solution to manage enduro timing. We spent the off-season scoping the needs of a high-end enduro timing system that was delivered days before our first race. Unfortunately, we attempted to use a software system that is not fully-developed and it produced inconsistent results over the course of last few seasons. This year, we had an unfortunate multiple-stage equipment failure. But we were prepared with back up times. The equipment issues caused a delay in the race which then effected the 5th stage which was contingent on getting Stage #1 done quickly. Stages #2 and #4 where perfectly timed. We rebuilt stages #1 and #3 from back up times and released correct results. We have had our timing issues, but it is not from a lack of trying.
