It’s interesting to see how UK broadsheet papers are covering the Tour De France with big interactive projects. It’s obviously a giant event - and the amount of statistics and relevant info that can be packed into an interactive page can be fairly overwhelming.
Despite all having a slightly different feel, they all include map information, route gradients and stage winners, as well as analysis of cycling tactics. The Times have a really fun moving graphic for the latter.
One thing that newspapers have in abundance is a giant archive of writing from the past. It’d be cool if some of this could be plugged into an interactive to give a bit of historical context, i.e. an account of Eddy Merckx’s first win, or Lance Armstrong’s 7th.
