Graphing the Tour de France

Posted by Joshua Newton On July 14, 2010 0 comments

The Tour de France has just entered the second week of racing, and I’m tired. In a good way. Because if you’re an Australian fan of the Tour de France and you like to watch each stage live, you must be prepared to lose a little shut eye.

While I love the TV coverage of the race, it can sometimes be difficult to gauge how cyclists who are not race favourites fare on each particular stage. To this end, I created a graph using data from the 2009 Tour de France to determine the stages that had a major effect on cyclists’ times.
