Members Mylaps Timing Chipschip 3
  • TriClub Doha uses Mylaps Prochips to time our all our races
  • Each member is provided with a chip when they join a new club member (worth QAR150)
  • Existing club members (with a chip) can renew club membership at a lower rate by adding their chip ID and expiry date to their members profile
  • Every chip comes with a 12 month subscription. Chips are activated before you collect the chip. No need to activate
  • Renewing members are responsible for renewing and activating their chip subscription to keep it working 12 months after their joining date, eg. members joining in January 2018 will need to renew in January 2019
  • It is up to each member to check their chip is working at each race. The easiest way is to cross a timing loop before any club race to see if it beeps. If there is no beep, please check with a timing official (even new chips just in case)
  • You can also check the chip subscription on the mylaps website or with the mylaps software (Windows PC only) or shake the chip for 5-10 seconds and then wait for 5 seconds to see if a green light flashes twice (see below)
  • Each member should take note when their chip subscription is scheduled to expire. Expired chips don't beep
  • In the event a chip is not working, no times will be captured during a race and nothing can be done after a race to capture an accurate time if the chip was not active
  • If you forget your chip to a timed event then you will not be timed. At our QF Events you may be able to rent a chip for the day for QAR50 (subject to availability)

Check your Chip Status on Mylaps.com

  • Members can register chips at mylaps.com website. This allows you to check the subscription status, the expiry date, buy a new subscription, or redeem a subscription card (purchased from TriClub Doha at QAR100 each)
  • Any subscriptions purchased online, or cards redeemed at mylaps.com still require activation using the Prochip Flex Manager PC App (instructions below)
To register a chip and check the status, follow these easy instructions on the web:

5. If you need to renew your chip subscription
Click on "Manage product" where you can buy a new subscription or redeem a subscription card. TriClub Doha can sell you a subscription card for QAR100 (see club coordinator at any of our race events)
Alternatively, we offer a chip exchange service for QAR125, where we give you recycled chip with a one year subscription on it, in exchange for your expired chip (again, visit the club coordinator at any of our race events)

Note: You still need to Activate a new subscription using mylaps prochip flex manager software.

Check Status and Activate a New Subscription Using Mylaps Prochip Flex Manager Software (Windows PC only, not available for mac)

Click here to download Flex Manager to your Windows PC

  • Install and start the flex manager on your Windows PC. Connect your chip using your USB cable to your PC (supplied with your chip and ankle strap)
  • You will be able to see the expiration date and the battery level
  • This is the only place you can Activate a new subscription added on mylaps.com
  • If you do not have access to a Windows PC, visit a timing official prior to a club race where your chip can be activated
Other Information
  • Any member who does not race with their own chip will most likely not have their details updated in the system until well after the race is complete and therefore could miss out on a podium placing at the post-race presentation. In order to ensure that the podium presentation is completed on time, the club does not guarantee an accurate podium presentation where members have not raced with their own chip
  • Please take note that timing chips do not recharge. The battery should last 4-5 years but in some cases only 2-3 years
  • If you have a problem with a chip that cannot be resolved, please email Triclub so a replacement or rental chip for a race can be arranged in advance prior to the next event. Resolving this prior to a race will ensure the race file is updated when the event begins
  • Chips with low batteries or other faulty chips will be replaced by Mylaps under guarantee with a working chip with a similar subscription expiration date. Please return these to the club coordinator who will provide an exchange
  • Existing members who have lost their chips over the off-season should not enter their lost chip ID into their member's profile. Club Membership upgrade will cost an additional QAR150 to cover the cost of the new replacement chip
  • Replacements for lost chips are available at race events for QAR150 (see club coordinator)
