you are required to have #'s on the the bike, front and both sides at the rear, you are also required to post up your # at your pit space

You are required to have them on your helmet now. You can get them at the track or order them online. The number is about 1" tall with a number plate type border around it, and it looks pretty good actually.

I think the CMRA is selling them for $1/ ea.

Email nancy@cmraracing.com and she'll set you straight

We used to have to do that back when CMRA was w/ WERA. But it wasn't enforced. Also they were alot smaller. That there is kinda rediculous.

I didn't think it had to be that big?

Walter said those pics were a good representation of what they're looking for. He also said they really don't have a clear guideline on exact number sizes, but he liked the ones shown.

It's to help with an unconscious rider or crashed rider and helping to get information to the teammates/ family and also to get the bike and parts back to the right team.

It's just a sticker for the helmet, not a big deal... I think the whole sticker on the pics I posted was 2".

so it DOES have to have the number plate around it? Any idea if they're going to have the plates/borders available at the track as well?

No, it does not have to have a border on it, but it helps. The numbers need to be visible and legible and large enough that a cornerworker or race official can ID it from a short distance. Contrasting colors would be most effective here, as you might imagine. You can make it as pretty as you want, but it has to be functional, too.

The whole idea here is providing an extra measure of safety for riders. We've had riders go down and get injured (including being knocked out), and the corner workers and race officials have little way of knowing who the rider is without a lot of behind-the-scenes effort. With helmet numbers it will be much easier for an official to call a corner and ask, "What is the number on the helmet?" and get a positive ID on the rider since the number on the bike doesn't universally tell who is riding it on an endurance team or during practice.

So does this not pertain so much to sprint racers?

Sprint riders practice, so yes, it applies.
