Transponder Timing Pilot

Included in your Season Number pack is a Frame Plate with a transponder attached.

We are piloting these transponders to time our races.

  • You need a Frame Plate attached to your bike to be timed.
  • It's important that you use the Frame Plate assigned to you. Not using your Frame Plate means you won't get timed or someone else's name appears instead of yours.
  • Mount your Frame Plate (which includes a transponder) like any of the three photos...

  • Please DO NOT put the Frame Plate in your pocket, it doesn't work).

  • Want to check your transponder number?

    The last three digits of the number will be the same as the number on the Frame Plate and should match your race number.
  • Check the Transponder MASTER LIST here
  • The Race Result startlist & results includes the transponder number we are expecting for you. If it doesn't match you don't get timed.

  • Please help others get their Transponder mounted correctly.

Scratching policy

Self-service scratching includes an automated refund. Scratching closes at the same time as entries. Use the SCRATCH button on the race entry page to scratch.


If you have raced with us before you will be expected to race in the same grade this season. Lack of training is everyone’s reason to go down a grade, and doesn’t wash with the handicapper. If you have another justifiable reason to change grades please email entries@hawthorncycling.org at least two days prior to your intended race and we will evaluate your request.

If you race at another location in Melbourne please enter for the same grade at the HCC Kew races.

It is the responsibility of each rider to enter into the correct grade, not the person at the entry desk to catch them out. If the race committee is made aware that a rider has entered into a lower grade, and this is confirmed, then they will be disqualified and any win or place money forfeited.

If you are not sure which grade to race, discuss this with the handicapper using the email below.
