Revolve24 has launched a custom built Race App in partnership with and powered by Map My Tracks. The app, which is now available for download for free on the App Store and Google Play, will allow people to track them and their teammates’ progress around the race track live on race day. In the meantime the app can be used to improve your chances on race day by tracking your training data to decide where your team should be positioned on the start grid, as well as the bragging rights of pit garage number 1! The much coveted Pole Position on the tarmac of the start finish straight will be decided in the weeks leading up to race through a bespoke algorithm which will reward the most committed cyclists willing to put in the miles and set the pace.
By linking your GPS performance data from training rides, grid positions will be calculated based on the miles covered, feet climbed and average speed achieved, averaged out across the team members. The app is now available to all competitors and supporters and allows teams and individuals to see how well they are fairing against the competition and start planning their strategy for the 24 hour relay race.
Once the red lights go out at the start of the race, real-time performance data, individual and team tracking information will be available enabling competitors to know where they stand in the race for King or Queen of The Mountains, Fastest Lap, Category Champions and Overall Winners.
The Race App, which provides a social network for riders and competitors, will also keep you in touch with the latest event news through push notifications as well as training tips and offers from Revolve24 partners.
