Although I am an European, and thus Tour de France is the “only” tour for me, I must say that Amgen Tour is quite unique. And why’s that? Because this is the third year that they have used the Flash Platform to make the race available over Internet. The race started on February 14th, and you can see all the details here.
You can see the race live at that address, and if you wonder about the technologies used, then here is the answer: Flex, LiveCycle, and Adobe AIR.
My friend Duane Nickull created an online petition here, to convince the organizers of Tour de France to use a similar solution. This would be sweet :) Tell your friends, parents to sign the petition.
