Live rider data and onboard footage to continue at the 2018 Tour Down Under

Since its launch in 2014, Velon has been giving us an increasing eye into the workings of the pro peloton providing, viewers a unique insight to live rider data and onboard footage throughout the year.

For 2018, expect much of the same kicking off at this month's Tour Down Under in which spectators will be able to see how hard the pros are really riding with live data broadcast on screen. 

Viewers will be able to track the speed, power, cadence and heart rate of certain riders as they no doubt get a rude welcome back to WorldTour racing.

For Australian sprinter Caleb Ewan, the introduction of Velon to the Tour Down Under is yet another way of keeping fans engaged in the sport.

'More and more races in Europe are also using this platform and it gives fans a unique insight into the efforts of professional cyclists during races,' the Australian said.

'I think fans really enjoy the comparisons between riders in live time but also for the passionate cyclist amongst viewers, they are able to compare the data to their own efforts on the bike.'

Besides the data shown on the live TV broadcast, users will also be able to download the Velon app for more in-depth data. 

Launched by 10 WorldTour teams, Velon has been rising in relevance ever since, firstly through its unique data system and onboard footage and then more recently through the launch of its own race, the Hammer Series.

Velon also announced that it will be broadcasting live data from the Giro d'Italia for the second consecutive year.
