Welcome to the Trackleaders live tracking experience.
The basic function is to show last known positions of tracking devices over a live map, including route and/or race specific information and analysis. Individual Riders are represented by icons on the map. Click on the icons for more information on that Rider. A sidebar gives a list of all Riders with zoom controls and links to individual tracking history pages.
A few tips:
Time stamps: Keep in mind that the positions shown are the latest available. Trackers send out signals at intervals, ranging from every 2.5 minutes to every 10 minutes. The position shown is the most recent reported, and not necessarily the current position. Pay attention to the time stamps!
Don't Panic: No news is good news. Just because a tracker hasn't reported a new point recently does not mean anything is wrong. Trackers will stop transmitting when stopped, if batteries die or for a number of other reasons. Stay calm and keep checking for updates.
Refresh buttons: Most components in the tracking application either automatically refresh or have their own refresh buttons. This saves having to refresh the entire page in your browser, giving you faster access to the latest data.
Recommended Browsers: We recommend Google Chrome for the best trackleaders experience. Firefox is good, too. If you're using Safari or Internet Explorer, you should switch, and not just for Trackleaders.

ABOUT THE TRACKER
Dales Divide 2020
Starting from Arnside, on Morecambe Bay and the Irish Sea, the first 40km is on a mixture of minor roads and pastureland bridleways and gets you to where you enter the Yorkshire Dales National Park. You are now in limestone country. Remote in parts, with moorland, barns, walls and lots of ancient routes from roman days and well used in monastic times for driving livestock from valley to valley. There is very little road until about 150km where the Dales spills into the flatter land of the Vale of York. This is Harrogate, birthplace of the late Mike Hall, Yorkshireman, probably the best bike-pack endurance racer there has ever been an inspiration to so many of todays racers. It is then a mixture of bridleways and minor roads to York and the Minster at 220km and the real flat lands. Fast gravel tracks and roads get you to Scarborough at 300km and a ride along the shore of the North Sea. An immediate turn West is riding over the isolated moors of the North York Moors National Park. Tracks that are sometimes well made, sometimes not, both follow the ridges as well as dropping up and down the steep sided valleys. Much of this area is the Woodcock C2C area, a famous MTB ride. At 440km you drop suddenly into Osmotherly and out of the moors, back onto the Vale of York flatlands. Mainly on Sustrans minor roads, a spin across the flatlands gets to 490km and the start of the Yorkshire Dales again. Back onto those green lanes, drovers roads and bridleways the ride uses some of the iconic MTB tracks across Swaledale and Wensleydale then Ribblesdale and Dentdale before dropping out of the isolated dales at about 575km and a short ride back to Arnside. In total the route is 600km and 8000m of climbing. The race is open to all, free and set to encourage all riders, to improve skills and prepare riders for bigger events such as the Tour Divide and Silk Road.
