Tour de France 2006: Google Maps + GPS + heart rate data = Ubilabs TdF tracker

I knew that the TdF would inspire a few Google mashups this year, and here's one that updates in real time--

Using rider GPS and heart-rate monitor data, Ubilabs has set up a Tour tracker that lets you monitor the position of 8 riders: Jens Voigt and Christian Vande Velde of CSC, Filippo Pozzato and Bram Tankink of QuickStep, Michael Rogers and Patrik Sinkewitz of T-Mobile, and Sebastian Lang and Beat Zberg of Gerolsteiner.

It also shows the course with intermediate sprints, king of the mountain lines, and feed zones.
Very cool.
