A group of Puerto Rican Triathletes made history by integrating Multi-User GPS Live Tracking on their Pre-Event Test Run.
The 2nd eddition of the "Trialo de Ceiba" is hosted by the competitive Tri-Athlete Miss Annie Rivera and will take place at the Base Roosevelt Roads, Ceiba Puerto Rico on Nov, 1 2015. This outstanding team wanted to do something different! They want to try for the first time our multi-user GPS live tracking for sports powered by Racemap.
As usual on a Triathlon the route is divided by 3 Stages . Swim aprox 0.5 mile , Bicycle Stage aprox 11.89 miles and Run Stage of 3 miles.
GPS TRACKING BELTS
Each Athlete was equip with one of Our Waterproof GPS TRACKING BELTS. During the swim stage no Live tracking is supported however as soon each athlete finished the swim stage the Live Tracking started automatically. You may ask why installing a Tracking device for the water if there is no use? Our case study reveals that wearing the device prior the event guarantees no athlete will miss installing their GPS Live Tracking Belts during the Swim-Bike transition.
LIVE TRACKING AND SPECTATORS
During a Triathlon event many spectators, friends and family members will like to know what is happening or how their favorite team is performing. Having such technology integrated will give a new perspective. We must say a new interactive perspective.
We gather feedback from the group and it was 100% positive. They all agree the Live Tracking Belts where comfortable to use. Didn't degraded their performance even in the swim stage. They also felt more secure having such device installed in case of any situation arrived during the event. We must say They Rock!
THE FUTURE OF TRIATHLONS
The Trialo de Ceiba Team and the Host Miss. Annie Rivera had made a outstanding step in the triathlon future. This group was the first one that took the leap on integrating Multi-User Live Tracking. This type of technology still has not been used by major Triathlons Brands. What we have achive here will change the future of this type of sports. Well Done Athletes!
