I think you should have your number instead of a team number.

I just emailed Nancy to find out about specifics - if it REQUIRES a number plate with a color pertaining to novice/expert status, where on the helmet it has to be (front, back, sides, or all 3), and if number plates are required whether or not the plates will be available for purchase at the track with the numbers. She forwarded it to Walter, and I'll post up what he says

It's your sprint number because that number is unique to only you. This limits the confusion because there are X number of riders on a shared endurance bike, and, as an endurance rider, you may ride for more than one team. You might ride multiple bikes in practice, too, some of which may not be yours with your number.

Now, for the TMGP crossover, well, I don't know. It's a good idea, but I don't know if we're going to enforce it. Additionally, your TMGP number doesn't mean anything to the CMRA in terms of identifying you, so ask that question to Nancy or Walter for clarification.

The number on your helmet is YOUR competition number, not an endurance team number. Whether you sprint or not, every rider has a competition number. That is how we identify you.

So, when I ask "What is your competition number?", you reply with YOUR number, not an endurance team number.

Walter is the answer man on this: walter@cmraracing.com or 682-225-3087.

In an endurance race, the endurance number makes more sense. I don't know all the competition numbers of my team mates, but there is no doubt about the team number.

Maybe competition number on right, endurance number on left if applicable could be a good rule.

Endurance team number means nothing on the helmet of a rider. In an incident where a rider is not able to communicate, emergency personnel need to identify the rider, not what bike he/she was riding. As I posted earlier, we (the CMRA) identify riders by their competition number...we have no quick way of looking up what riders are associated with an endurance team.

Unless Walter says differently, an endurance team number goes on the endurance bike and pit spot, not on a helmet.
