    Endurance teams not on Race Monitor during Friday practice

    Seems like they have been in the past. Were not on Friday and maybe Saturday AM. Is that normal? Can it be “fixed?”

    Never have been. Teams will show up under the name of the tram owner during Friday practice.

    Thanks. Bike didn't show up under Dave Gallagher or anyone else. #5 is our endurance number, #810 is Dave Gallagher. I think during LW expert practice, only 13 bikes showed, but there were many more than that out there.

    I'll add that I spoke to the ladies in registration about it after the second or third practice session. They said not everyone had been entered yet but would be by the first afternoon session. Many more riders showed up, but still not ours.

    Our bike(#69) was being timed under Doug Frenchak in the afternoon. He has no affiliation with the team other than having that same number for his sprint bike. We saw times, so it was at least an improvement. Some team names showed up during Friday practice, but not any that pre-entered.

    We had a number of issues with scoring on Friday. We were focusing on the problems with the tracks scoring loops. Ryan ended up running 600+ feet of cable to bypass the tracks failed in ground cabeling. Unfortunately most of the mixed up number issues were data entry mistakes. We also had 9 of our rental transponders that had battery issues. There age is finally catching up to them. (Approximately 16 years old) You all have my word that we will do better moving forward.

    Thanks, Walter. Josh is right, it is definitely a technical challenge. I appreciate the work that went in to another successful race weekend.
