    Here is a tutorial made by Bill Fitkowski from OO. Thanks for making this Bill. :)

    For the 2016 Dacre Dualsport Challenge Rally Connex is implementing more of the built in functions of the LiveLaps Scoring System.
    As part of this implementation the riders will be required to go online and create a rider account using the LiveLaps website

    You may wish to print off the following to assist you in creating your account. The account creation is free and needs to be completed before you can register for the Dacre Dual Sport Challenge. It will also be required if you post enter so it is highly recommended to complete this process ASAP.

    Step 1. Go to the LiveLaps website and if you do not already have a LiveLaps account select "Create Account" and then "Participant Account" at the top of the home page.

    [​IMG]

    Step 2. Fill in all the fields on the Account Page. Note please use a Password that you will not forget. Once the Account and Profile is done your future login will be your email and password.

    [​IMG]

    Step 3. Compete your "Rider Profile" filling out the required fields at the bottom of the form plus any other info you may wish to add (eg. Sponsors). Please note you are not required to fill in the AMA information Later on when you register for an event you will be asked once more to choose your class. At that time only the OffRoad Ontario classes will show in the dropdown list.

    [​IMG]

    At this point you have completed your LiveLaps Account & Rider Profile and can logout.
    These next steps cover registering for the Dacre Dualsport Challenge if registration for that event is open.

    Step 1. Select Account Login at the top of the LiveLaps Home Page and then login using your email and password which you did not forget.

    Step 2. Select "Registration" at the top of the page and then select "Avail. Event Registrations" from the dropdown list.

    [​IMG]

    Step 3. Select the event you wish to enter from the list on the right. Be careful to select the proper event.

    Step 4. Most of the information on the Event Application form will already will have imported into the form however you need to select your class (Enduro Class or Adventure Class) For the Rider row number just select Row 1 (Rally Connex does not use this function for our events). You also have the opportunity to have your friends ride on the same team, as long as you know their last name and they have a LiveLaps Rider Account.

    [​IMG]

    Step 5. You will now be taken to the PayPal page where you will pay for the event. You can use either a PayPal account if you have one or a credit card.

    [​IMG]

    Step 6. Once you complete the PayPal Payment you will be returned to the LiveLaps website and will receive a confirmation of payment in the form of an "Event Passport"
    This is your Proof of Payment and will be required when you come to the registration area at the event. Please do not forget it.

    [​IMG]

    That concludes the process. As a side note if you wish to ride an AMA National Enduro you can use this account that you just created to sign up for that event. You may wish to edit your account to change your account to have a AMA number beforehand however.

    The most recent Rally Connex Email News letter has been released. If you didn't get it, here it is below. :)

    Rally Connex Spring Newsletter, Dacre special edition

    We are very excited to be partnered with Twisted Throttle and KTM Canada for this year’s Dacre DualSport challenge. The Dacre DualSport Challenge is a dual sport event designed to honor and mimic the achievements of the competitors of the real DAKAR Rally in Europe, Africa and now South America.

    This year’s event continues on our “Challenge Concept” where it is not about a day tour but rather one’s ability to prepare physically, mentally, mechanically, and navigationally to create self-sufficiency within a team to conquer the route. This event is considered a 5 on our difficulty scale.

    We are very excited that together with our sponsors we are adding an Adventure class to this year’s event that will accommodate adventure bikes ranging from 650cc’s to 1200cc’s. Check out our website atwww.rallyconnex.comfor more exciting event details.

    Just a couple things;

    The start location is actually 69 Concession 4 East. The 4 is missing from your listing.

    Also can you clarify the start and finish locations for sections 3 and 4?

    And can I leave my car at the start for a couple days? A couple of us are doing a RAP ride starting from Dacre. Plan to be 2 nights and 3 days back to the start. Approx 1000 km.

    Thanks for the clarification of the start. Some maps just don't give all the same address for one location. Silly! Rest assured that the Google link on our Rally Connex web Page is correct and it will take you to the start location. Google's address link is: https://goo.gl/maps/HxQxyjsV1JJ2

    The finish locations for sections 3 and 4 are as follows:

    STAGE THREE
    Gooderham to Weslemkoon Lake

    STAGE FOUR
    Weslemkoon Lake to Dacre

    Yes you can leave your car at the start. When you arrive please communicate with a Team Rally Connex Member and we will direct you to the appropriate parking location for that length of time.
