Timekeeping at BMX events is a huge challenge. Events can take place at rough terrains and sometimes under demanding weather conditions.
BMX challenges can sometimes be visited by thousands of mountain bikers who are up for a challenge and a fun day.

Detection loops are installed in the track at the start and finish line and intermediate time points. The loops work as the system´s antennas and pick up the ProChips signals.
The detection loop can be installed in basically every type of surface.
