Where / When is packet pickup?
What should I do if I lose by bib or timing chip?
If you have lost any of your race numbers, return to packet pickup and bring all your remaining numbers with you. We will assign you a new number. If you lost your timing chip (fondo only) prior to the race, then a new chip can be issued; however, you will be assigned a new bib # as well.
Where do I place my bib number(s)?
Bib numbers will go on the left side of your jersey down near the jersey pocket. The front catches a whole lot of air. Use 7 safety pins: one on each corner, one in the middle of either side of the label, and one on the middle of the top. Don’t pin through the corner holes or the bib will flap around.
