Often events like sportives or races will provide GPX files of the course for you to upload to your GPS device, but I get lots of requests to be able to view those GPX files in VeloViewer in order to see 3D profiles, Google StreetView and other features of the VeloViewer Route Details page direct from these files. VeloViewer has two ways to do this, one is fast but slightly limited, the second is a bit more involved but provides all the features:
This is one of the most commonly asked question I get but whose answer deserves more than just a place on the FAQ – “How do I view segments on VeloViewer that I haven’t ridden?”. Maybe you’re planning a holiday or about to tackle a race or sportive and you want to check out what you’ve let yourself in for? Well, here’s how to do it.
“Working with Veloviewer has been one of the best improvements this year.”
Dario Cioni (Team Sky – Sports Director)
You may have noticed that Team Sky has been tweeting out VeloViewer 3D profiles as well as custom 2D VeloViewer profiles this year; behind the scenes I have been working closely with Team Sky’s performance staff providing a one-stop-shop for all of their race-recon needs for the 2016 season.
“VeloViewer is everything we need at our fingertips. It saves us time because we don’t have to navigate between different types of web sites to get all the technical details of the race parkour we require. You can even find, with street view, a nice cafe for your coffee stop!”
Nicolas Portal (Team Sky – Sports Director)
This is a really exciting development for VeloViewer. The early feedback has been great and many of the new features requested by Team Sky are available for everyone to use at //veloviewer.com
