Timekeeper 1 (starter):
The starter meets with the main timekeeper and recorder prior to the event. All 3 watches are set and started simultaneously. The starter is then responsible for:
- Shouting riders to the start line
- Checking name and number of the rider
- Tick off rider on start sheet, recording any changes to name or number or out of sequence rider
- Count down rider to their start
- Re-grouping with main timekeeper and recorder after event to exchange information and correlate records
Recorder (at finish line):
The recorder works closely with main timekeeper at the event finish line. Once a rider crosses the line the timekeeper will stop the watch and note the time. The recorder will:
- Also note the name of rider and time shouted out by timekeeper
- Calculate riding time based on finish/start time in minutes and seconds
- Work out handicap’s
- Verify times with timekeeper
