Follow the Tour de France on Maps

There are a lot of ways to follow the Tour de France, which has started in Monaco this Saturday. A lot of people will still use the 'old fashion' way of TV and radio, but the Internet is starting to play a bigger role every year.

With the arrival of Twitter in the peloton of cyclists, the cyclers have gotten a lot closer to reach. Who doesn't want to know how Lance Armstrong has feels after a hot day in the Alps? But there is more than just Twitter. Ubilabs for example has launched a live tracking maps of the race leaders in the Tour de France with real time tweets about the race.

On the map you can now view routes of all the stages by choosing them from a drop down menu. On the route you will find map markers showing start and finish lines and the mountain and sprint stages.

This Maps Mashup is probably just one of the many mashups which can be found around this event of the year in France. Found any others? Let us know!
