I made a couple countdown timers. One for 30 min, the other for 60 min. The idea is to download them to a computer or cell phone with HDMI output, and then display them on a cheap TV or a monitor with HDMI input, so the racers can see it. I have an old blackberry with HDMI output that may work, but not the big screen.

Also I'd like to do something similar for laps but I haven't figured that one out.

I put a link to these web pages on the HPRA rules page.

Warren that is an awesome idea. My old flip card counter can be one less thing needed at the races.

Dennis - I hope to attend Iowa. I'll see in the next week. Its looking like I'm not going to Battle Mountain. Id love to run the Norus around Hawkeye Downs. It needs some more work that I hope to get to over this next week.

Garrie,
Dora an I are staying at La Quinta Inn about 8 miles north of HawkEye Downs. It's a few bucks cheaper. We are saving our pennies for another trike.

Well, something is going on in Cedar Rapids, and many of the hotels are sold out! I am staying downtown at the Cooper's Mill Hotel..... And I got the last room available. Better not wait too long racers!

Great video, Bob! Wow, your heartrate was in the 170s, mine was in the 150s. I don't think my PT hub was synced to the Garmin for the race.

I was surprised how fun that video turned out they are usually dead boring.

Yeah the 170's always surprises me If I can break 155 on the trainer that a good day. Tanya's comes in around 190.

Now make that a figure 8 race and I might join here in the 190's.
