Just wondering what those red matchbox sized things are on the front wheel, bottom of the fork, are? They are on the Pros bikes but not always.

Are they in addition to the computers?

Is it for the radios? Does it relay the HR info?

Anyone used one?

Ta.

They are for the timing systems used. They contain a small individual transponder which is measured when they cross the finishline. It creates a bit of havoc when they lose them in crashes etc.
