Over The Hump Mountain Bike Race Series Rules
(Keep your number it will be yours for the entire series)
NEW FOR 2012: WE’RE TIMING WITH RFID CHIPS ON YOUR NUMBER PLATE. HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!
Proper scoring is your responsibility-Finish line, number plates etc
You MUST be responsible for the following if you want to be scored.
TO GET SCORED- DO THIS:
***There is only ONE acceptable way to mount your chip equipped number plate:***
Your number plate must be mounted on the front of your bike IN FRONT of all wires, cables etc. NOTHING can be in front of your number plate or the chip will not read properly
You will NOT get scored, if ANY CABLES ARE IN FRONT OF YOUR # PLATE
LAPS: You will be going under the lap timing arch each lap. This will give you lap times. On your last lap you will turn off and finish by going into the finish chute.
FINISH LINE: The finish line is BEFORE the lap timing arch! You may sprint to the line but SLOW DOWN upon entering the lap arch and finish chute.
FINISH: Go through the finish chute stay in order, this is your finish position so DO NOT PASS in the finish chute. We scan your chip to record your actual finish order. The arch is for timing your LAPS.
“CHIP” TIMING: Yes, we use chip timing at OTH. Although very accurate, it is not fool-proof. We will still run a video / other back up system. For this reason, after you finish under the Lap/Finish timing arch You MUST STAY IN ORDER AFTER YOU CROSS UNDER THE TIMING ARCH AND CONTINUE INTO THE FINISH CHUTE.
Sportsmanship conduct: Foul riding, use of profane language towards other riders, and other unsportsmanlike behavior is prohibited. The penalty imposed is at the discretion of the race director.
Racer protests must be filed in writing with the race director, within 15 minutes of completing the race. This is a FUN race: disputes will be handled fairly with involved parties, ultimate decision will be by the Race Director.
Category (Class) Descriptions: SEE CLASS PAGE 
Scoring and points: All scores are FINAL. Racer will receive points in their class:
Category number system: We use numbers for series points. You will have the same number for the entire series. KEEP THIS NUMBER.
Lost number plates are $5 and can only be issued by OTH (no home made number plates!)
