Tour de France Meets Google Earth – Sweetness!

Posted by techie on July 7, 2006

I posted previously about a map tracking the Tour de France live. Google has now teamed up with the official Tour de France website to show the Tour de France on google earth.

They describe the experience perfectly:

Be sure to try out the tilt feature to see the truly daunting magnitude of all of those climbs where riders are battling it out in this year’s wide-open race. “Beyond Category” climbs? No thanks — we’ll stick to the flats and leave those verticals to the pros!

I actually like the climbs. At least on google earth.
