Years of volunteering for the local Squamish mountain biking club of over 2000 members give us deep experience with the key problems race organizers face. Capturing times and names accurately, then preparing race results used to be tedious, time consuming and error prone. To solve this, Bruce and Andrew experimented with creating custom mobile apps, using lasers and wireless chip scanning. Spruce Race Timing is the culmination of our experience in the field both as race participants as well as technical problem solvers.
We began working together in 2004. Bruce and Andrew are formally trained in industrial and graphic design and are also experts in software development and are skilled in electrical engineering. We custom design and develop our own hardware and software in-house which has enabled us to realize our vision of making an all-inclusive, kick-ass, hike-in packable, timing system with live results.
