EXPAND YOUR TIMING BUSINESS by Gemini Timing
We have owned Gemini Timing for three years. During these three years we have been perfectly content with timing 5K’s, 10K’s, Mud Runs, Half Marathons, Marathons, Triathlons, if you can run it, we can time it. A client of ours who is the race director for a 4th of July race approached us in March 2014 and asked if we had the capability of timing bike races. We didn’t yet but having just attended the Ipico Conference that January we knew that there was equipment available to us that could make this possible. So after a little research we were the proud owners of several sets of bike antennas and power tags capable of safely timing bikes whipping over a finish line at high rates of speed. From the first time we used this equipment we knew that we had tapped into something big. The equipment is doing exactly what we were told it would do. It is easy to set up and easy to take down. The power tags are working very well, reading at 99.9% at speeds of 40 to 60MPH. These speeds are increased with every antenna we add to the start/finish line.
After months of timing two races a week, both Time Trials and CRITS, the client that had turned us onto the cycling market informed us that bigger bike races were interested in hiring us to time their races. This included a race for Bicycling Magazine. We couldn’t be happier with how the Ipico cycling equipment has performed and how it opened up a whole new market for us that allowed us to successfully grow our company.
