Replay the 2015 Red Bull X-Alps
You can now replay highlights of the 2015 Red Bull X-Alps on a 3d map. The Red Bull X-Alps is an adventure race in which competitors must hike or fly 1,000 km across the Alps. Every kilometer of the race must be covered either on foot or by paraglider.
For this year's race Red Bull have partnered with Doarama to provide 3d mapped highlights from the race. The interactive uses the Cesium 3d mapping platform to provide an animated playback of Day 10 of the race, showing the GPS tracks of the competitors on a 3d map of the Alps.
While you watch the Red Bull X-Alps Doarama of Day 10 of the race you can choose which athlete to follow by using the 'people/focus icon' in the top right corner of the map. You can control the speed of the replay using the tortoise and hare buttons. You can also pan around the 3d map and zoom in and out on any of the athletes.
