Updated: Aug 21, 2023

Anyone who has used Tour Tracker Grand Tours knows Clara Beard. She has been doing the live commentary for the app since the beginning. Clara's insightful play-by-play of every race we cover is the heart and soul of the app.

Unfortunately as we have expanded from 3 races to over 20, the cost of the purchasing and distributing the data the app needs (routes, rosters, GPS, results) has gone up correspondingly, while the number of paying customers has not. So Clara is working 7x harder without the app bringing us any more money at the end of the day...

So as of today, I have added a feature to the apps called Coffee For Clara. It is a chance for users to voluntarily send Clara a small thank you as often as they like. 100% of the profits of this will go to Clara for coffee, beer or however she wants to hydrate herself. Or a taco.

Of course most users understandably feel they already pay for the app, and please don't feel obligated to do anything. But if you love what she does and think that we charge a reasonable amount for what the app does, send her a coffee occasionally!

As an added incentive to show Clara some love, I'm going to raffle off some of my - unused - jerseys I have collected from races I have worked with. To enter, email a screenshot of your phone showing the "purchase complete" message to!

Thanks, Allan

And here is a photo of your favorite cycling reporter on the job!

The original web version of Tour Tracker was designed to highlight live race video with all of our other data visualizations surrounding that key element, a layout that has proven successful for over 12 years and is still used for official Tour de France coverage.

But not every race has live race video available to every user and we needed a simple way to provide those users with a familiar, complete solution. Since GPS tracking was now one of the primary data sources, we did a simple layout change for those users.

But by 2021 the number of users using Tour Tracker's free live race coverage at had grown significantly, and we felt it was time to give those users a proper design, focusing the layout on the most important elements: the live race profile and our live multi-media commentary feed.

As you can see the new layout puts the key elements center stage, giving more height to the profile so that we could show the rider group details and more width to the commentary so that embedded photos and videos have more impact.

The new layout also provides a new area in the lower right for additional relevant content: a list of intermediates for quick access to their details and results (actually you could always click on the icons on the profile or map to get this but that's not obvious to every user), a summary of the standings for quick reference without changing context, and a new social media feed.

But wait, there's more! While we were updating the layout, we revisited a much harder problem: adapting the app to devices and websites where we don't have enough width for three columns of data. Back in 2015 we provided some basic reflow capability for each tab of the app, but for 2022 we have a more complete solution.

The LIVE page, for example, goes to an optimized 1-column view when needed, keeping the most critical elements at the top, while the rest of the data (e.g. the map) is a short scroll away.

With the other tabs like STANDINGS, however, we wanted to retain the list of riders throughout the transition to narrower widths. As such they go from 3-columns (category, riders, rider profile):

To 2-columns (category, riders, clicking on rider will show a profile pop-up):

To 1-column (most important categories and riders stacked, click on rider for profile):

We hope you enjoy these updates and look forward to getting feedback!
