Mapping the Tour: Prototype #1.1

It’s Bastille Day, a Frenchman is in yellow and the race reaches the mountains ‘proper’ with a category 1 summit finish. Our 3D map of the final two climbs of the day – the Col des Chevrères and La Planche des Belles Filles – includes live tracking of the race.

Live tracking

Best viewed fullscreen (via the top-right button), this map tracked the Tour de France in real-time as Vincenzo Nibali won stage 10, from the point the race reached 21km from the finish at the foot of the Col des Chevrères. The prototype uses WebGL, which will not work across all browsers or devices.
