---We will be announcing the 7 race venues for the 2009 Memorial Day Tour of Atlanta Soon---
The GC, as well as several other racing events, will use AMB.it chip timing for all of our bike race weekends (exlcuding the GCTT's). If you currently own your own AMB.it 'chip/transponder' it is still good! If not you can choose to rent for $15 per weekend/$7.50 per event.
AMB.it has set up an easy/hassel free way to purchase a chip/transponder ($109) by clicking here --> http://www.amb-it.com/chipx-transponders-c-1_3.html
All AMB personal transponder owners (RED ProChips) are encouraged to create a personal MyLaps account and register their transponders. This value added service offers racers a free homepage that stores all of their results, allows them to analyze their individual performance as well their team's performance with the goal of improving strategies and results for future races. For more information about the MyLaps service go to www.MyLaps.com.
Racers who rent a transponder from their racing organization are able to view their race results only.
