Easy to use and organized. It has a break down of teams and riders, including riders by standings. There is also a glossary of cycling terms. You can follow a race by way of a news feed ticker, a profile of the stage, and a map --- the latter two move at a not-quite-but-almost real-time pace. When you click on the icons in the map, which show the riders in the break, pelaton, etc. it will list which riders are in that group. You can also check the standings and qualifications by stage after each stage. The only way I can see this app getting better is to make the map a little more real-time, if possible, and to add live videos --- if not a few segments during the main body of the race, at least a live video for the last few kilometers of each stage. Like Tour Tracker does with some of their other tour apps. I like this app and will continue to use it and other apps by Tour Tracker.
Learn something everyday. Just learned to use live action to see live action rather than look under stage results, which of course do not show provisional times for time trial. Now used it for 2 weeks of the TdF and it's excellent.
Nice app People are complaining about the lack of features unless you pay. It's not like you have to sale your house to afford it. A business needs to make money to survive. The benefits are great. I highly recommend it
Updates are to slow When watching real time the updates are slower than via news websites. The updates for the tour standings after stage is completed are also to late. Yes the app is great for details, stage info etc.
Slow to update @ freezing Used during Tour of Britain (Pro upgrade). Froze frequently and needed shut down/reload to update positions. Froze completely 20km from end of stage 2. An hour after the finish, riders positions were unchanged despite several shut down/reload operations.
Close but not quite there yet... Depth and breadth of coverage is outstanding. But every time they roll out something new (like trying to track the tour of Britain at the same time the Vuelta is on) things that used to work, just don't work no more... Hence the need to get colloquial. If things get worse then suffering from the tour tracker blues may become endemic in this household.
Provisional Results: Unofficial stage results are now available at the top of the Tour Standings page until the UCI results are released!
