Are you the type of person who enjoys a good sporting event? Are you the type of person who has no problem using the internet to stay current with everything that is going on? If so, you need to realize that Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) can show you the way. This is particularly true when it comes to the 100th edition of the Tour de France.
Currently underway, this is the top cycling event of the year. For roughly three weeks every summer, the top cyclists in the world take to the roads in an attempt to capture the yellow jersey. While only one rider will take the top place on the podium, each rider gives it his all.
Those who are lucky enough to attend the Tour de France in person will remember this experience for the rest of their life. For everybody else, there is always the ability to watch the race unfold on television.
However, you also have another option: rely on Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) to make the event more interactive.
Here is a brief excerpt from a recent post on the company’s official blog:
“The Tour de France is using a variety of Google products to help you experience the race like never before, including a YouTube channel, a Google+ page and an Android app where you can keep up with this 100th edition. We’ve also used Google Maps and Street View to create a new interactive experience that lets you feel what it’s like to pedal alongside the greats. Put on your helmet and cycle along at g.co/yourtour.”
As you can see, the Tour de France is pulling out all the stops with the help of Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG). From a dedicated Android app to a YouTube channel, you are never going to miss out on any of the action.
In the past, you would be lucky if you were able to watch every stage of the race on television. Now, thanks to Google and its many tools, you can do more than that. You can now take part in an interactive experience that you are sure to enjoy throughout the entire month of July.
While there are many sporting events that take place throughout the year, not many impact as many people as the Tour De France. Let Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) make this experience even more enjoyable for you, the fan.
