IPICO Sports Cycling
EXPAND YOUR TIMING BUSINESS by Gemini Timing We have owned Gemini Timing for three years. During these three years we have been perfectly content with timing 5K’s, 10K’s, Mud Runs, Half Marathons, Marathons, Triathlons, if you can run it, we can time it.  A client of ours who is the race director for a 4th of July race approached us in March 2014 and asked if we had the capability of timing bike races.  We didn’t yet but having just attended the Ipico Conference that January we knew that there was equipment available to us that could make this possible.  So after a little research we were the proud owners of several sets of bike antennas and power tags capable of safely timing bikes whipping over a finish [ ... read more ]
Dragons Den – Quid Crono
Congratulations to Julie Belisle and Marie-Claude Dube of Quid Chrono for their success in being selected for the upcoming season of the CBC’s Dragons Den in Canada! They were selected from hundreds of French Canadian entrants who were vying for air time for their ideas and potential funding from the Dragons.

Not only did the ladies look great ( see photo above ) but they presented very well and received many [ ... read more ]

With the slogan “Over the snow and under the stars” a few hundred daring runners gathered January 18, 2014 at the Spanish ski station of Sierra Nevada to participate in the 2014 Gran Premio TERNUA 14K Snow Running.
