In 2010 Vermont (VCM) used the B-Tag, not the D-Tag or ChampionChip. That rules out the idea of him having a personal chip for his shoe-either 2 copies that he owns/used or 1 Chip and then gets 1 from our race. I am going to check our records (if our Registration Director still has them) to see if it was requested to re-issue a bib for Litton. The bib number we have recorded in our results for him, and showing in the finish line pictures, is 1609. I could theoretically see it being possible that he was issued a 2nd bib, which his brother or another accomplice used to get to miles 10 and 13.1 as I_Am_Sorry states above.
I would like more info on how one goes about cloning a chip/bib. That is something I have not previously heard about or read about. I understand the theory and motivation behind someone doing this with a toll reader for a car, but I don't see the motivation or it being worth the trouble to do it for every race one goes to. Is it possible to build a cloning system that allows one to clone all kinds of chips; Champion, D-Tag, B-Tag, Ipico, Winning Time, J-Chip, etc? I honestly don't know enough about the technicalities of such a proposal-anyone know?
What I_Am_Sorry wrote above in terms of how he pulled it off at VCM would explain why we have no photos of Litton at the 9 mile mark on Church St.
