Tour de France Live

I went along to watch the start of the Tour de France in London at the weekend. I've got to admit I wasn't that impressed. But if watching men in cycle shorts is your thing then you will like the Tour de France Live Tracker.

OK, to be honest I'm not sure if the fact that I prefer watching small pixels move on a map than watching the real thing is an indication of how boring cycling is or how much of a nerd I am. I strongly suspect the second. Nevertheless this live tracker of the Tour de France is an impressive bit of Google Maps hacking.
