What’s New from Dimension Data at the 2016 Tour de France

If you’ve been vigilantly watching the Tour de France you may have noticed a new piece of technology poking out from underneath each rider’s seat.

Dimension Data, the timing sponsor of the Tour de France are responsible for these telementry sensors that feed real-time data to their brand new data truck. This influx of information can be shared by Dimension Data across their updated website, through more graphics on television and on social media.
