New Features – TdF07 Site July 11, 2007

Posted by dperry1ma in Tour de France.

Just want to highlight two features of the blog that are not obvious from the main page. First, in the Team Rosters section, you can link to the personal websites of each rider who has one by clicking on their name. Many of the riders have superb personal websites, with biographies, histories of their wins, personal observations and more. For riders who do not have a personal site, or whose site has not yet been located, we have provided a link through to the best available wikipedia entry. In some cases this is the entry from the wikipedia for their native language, in other cases, french, italian or dutch cycling enthusiasts have provided a superior entry on the rider. In either case, we wanted to make it easy to learn more about the rider, and their team, and that’s what the team roster pages are designed to do.

The second feature is the alphbetical list of riders. In addition to identifying the team and nationality for each rider, the entry provides their 2007 TdF bib number. Clicking on the bib number will take you to the riders table of performanace by stage at the official Tour de France results site. We wanted to provide you with a quick route to checking on the performance of any rider in the current race. As time permits we will provide cross references as well as additional information about each team and rider.
