1. Alerting for echelons

Are echelons likely to occur during the race and what are the critical sections?

2. Head- and tailwinds

How strong the head- and tailwinds will be during the race?


MyRacewind is a web app that runs on multiple devices and multiple platforms (iOS, Android). The interface is built around a map view where you can select a race. Each race contains following three layers:

wind arrows

echelon risk map

head-tailwind map

The echelon map shows the risk for echelons by making use of alerting colors: green, yellow, orange and red. Green means “very low” risk and red “very high”.

The app only requires a GPX race track as input and is based on an algorithm, that includes four parameters:

  • Wind speed
  • Wind direction
  • Slope
  • Landscape (open or closed)

The head-tailwind map shows red colors for headwinds and blue colors for tailwinds. The darker the color the more head- or tailwind.

MyRacewind uses real time wind forecasts and can start forecasting two weeks ahead of a race. With a time slider, changes during the race can be followed every hour. There is a geolocation option to position yourself along the track, which is useful for team directors in the car.
