Features & Customization
Tour Tracker can be deployed on very short notice as an off-the-shelf solution for your event. Or, if you have requirements that are above and beyond Tour Trackers standard feature set, our development team can customize the Tour Tracker platform for you.

Live Video – The centerpiece of most events, the Tour Tracker is the only technology that supports multiple live video streams, multiple cameras, a rich set of zoom options, picture-in-picture, and automatic bandwidth selection.
Video Advertising – Event promoters are able to display sponsor and self-promotion videos before and during the live video broadcast on Tour Tracker.

It also supports Twitter and RSS feeds for added flexibility.
Maps & Profiles – You might say that GPS data is what put Tour Tracker on the map, and its support for visualizing the race situation on maps and course profiles is unmatched. For races that don’t have real GPS tracking, it fully supports manual updates (distances, time gaps) that then generate simulated GPS data for viewers.
Race Situation – Tour Tracker offers multiple text-based presentations of the current race situation: a list of any break or chase groups, the riders in each group, their current overall standing, the time gaps between each group, etc.
Photo Feeds – Tour Tracker supports a number of photo feeds, providing both official race coverage and/or photos provided by fans along the route in real-time.
Video Feeds – Like with photos, the Tour Tracker can bring video clips right to the viewer as they are added to the system by the event and/or fans.
Chat – It might seem simple, but the option to have the fans chatting during the race has proven to be a huge win. In particular it serves as the start of a social networking effect that draws increasing number of viewers to the Tour Tracker each year.
Twitter – Tour Tracker incorporates Twitter in two ways. One, the Twitter page serves as a general overview of what cycling “Twitterati” are saying. The fans love it! Two, it can be configured to provide real-time race commentary via Twitter feed.
Rider Biometrics – Starting with the 2009 Tour de France, the Tour Tracker became the only technology capable of showing live power (watts), heart-rate and cadence data from riders on the road. This provides a captivating picture of how much the riders are suffering and allows the enthusiast cycling fan to relate their own efforts to the world’s top pros.
Standings & Results – In addition to the live feeds listed above, the Tour Tracker can present race results and race standings for all riders, teams and stages and special event categories such as most aggressive rider, king of the mountain, young rider and sprinters’ points contests.
Stage Overviews – Tour Tracker is also the only technology that can provide your viewers previews and reviews of every day of the race. For completed stages that includes the full commentary, video playback, GPS playback of how the race unfolded, results and photos from the day. For stages yet to come, Tour Tracker provides detailed descriptions of the stage and previews of the map and profile.
