No doubt technology has come a long way in regards to GPS tracking while you ride the trails.  But, now it seems like some of your favorite races are improving their real-time race-tracking so that you can sit at the convenience of your own home and live track from home.

Most recently, I enjoyed race-tracking the Ben Welnak, found of Mountain Bike Radio race the Vapor Trail 125.  Of course, due to the time difference, I didn’t watch the entire race, but was able to check in at my convenience through the later portion of the race.

My hope is that this technology will continue to come down in price and will be a staple for many races.

It seems like Strava Premium already has a function where you can post live results while riding so maybe this is not too far around the berm.vaportrail125 (640x535)
