Tour de France | An interactive history to the Worlds largest sporting event.
We love cycling and we love numbers so what better way to indulge our passion than creating an interactive history of the Tour de France.
From the inception of the first tour in 1903, our visualisation allows users to compare distance, speed and the all important seconds, minutes or hours that make the difference between GC leader and second place.
Whilst the history books have deleted Lance Armstrong's seven wins, we wanted to highlight them and present the information alongside data that underpinned those results.
By drawing attention to the average speed over those seven races compared with the tours surrounding them and the difference between the GC and second place, we believe you a presented with a more thorough and interesting story.
