Who wants to race a drone? =) This could make for some awesome follow cam footage of world cups.

Dude, nothing beats the sound of a mountain bike tire pounding through some rocks.
Except for maybe some tire buzz on the seat :D. Brap.

Looks like they can not have enough of those DT Swiss EX471s around. =)

Still mentioning winning PMB as a good end of a career? =( I wonder if he would actually do it? He has mentioned not necessarily wanting to retire but not being very motivated to do much else if he did win.

I doubt they would mount start and stop buttons. The central unit probably has a ton of storage space internally on an sd card and the data is likely a form of text which compresses well so they can afford to have it be always on collecting data. A simple battery switch or unplug the battery works. I would guess those buttons are for marking like/thumbs up and dislike/thumbs down data points while riding along. This would allow the rider to annotate how his setup feels on specific parts of the course. While not perfect by requiring the rider to be giving that data it sure beats the typical "yeah by that tree and you know that brown rock my setup felt too loose" I have been designing an open source data acquisition system for a while and something that came to mind is very similar. I would have two buttons to say like/dislike that would emit audio signals that are fed into a gopro video stream. Later on you play back the video and know where on the track you need to either find a better line or tweak your ride setup to handle better.
The back sensor is probably an optical sensor using the rear disc as an encoder.
