Does anyone know about the patches Mario DeClerq wears on his knees? Are they simply protection from the cold, or do they have some sort of heating properties -- either like the warming balms that boost skin circulation, or direct heating like the little stick-on footwarmer pads that have a thermal reaction when exposed to oxygen?

They are mustard plaster patches...you can get them at any pharmacy. The mustard plaster warms the joint and doesn't wash away in wet weather like a balm does.
