After a successful experiment with SI-chip control stations at O-Ringen 2017 in Värmland, we will simplify the procedures for using SI-chips even more for O- Ringen High Coast 2018.
At O-Ringen in Värmland, all competitors passed through control stations on the way to the start. This ensured that no one had to be stressed out by having the wrong number on their SI-chip when they got to the start line.
For O-Ringen 2018 you will not need to provide information about your SI-chip number ahead of time at all. Your bib number will have a bar code that will be used to connect with your SI-chip number at the control station on the way to the start.
We believe that this will further simplify the registration process and eliminate the problems that might arise for a competitor who took the wrong SI-chip to the start, or one who either rented an SI-chip or recently purchased a new one.
