    Anyone got any ideas on where i might be able to get my hands on a data extract of road racing results?

    I want to play with some cool data visualisation stuff and i think race results would be a nice dataset.

    Or if any of the smaller MTB race organisers are on here would any of you be willing to give out a few years results in return for some pretty graphs?

    Ive tried IG markets and UCI so far!

    There are plenty of MTB race results available on the Timelaps website.

    I did a race a while ago, can’t remember which one, and they published a sort of graph afterwards with names down the left, position on the right and laps across the top.
    You could follow a line from left to right and see how a rider’s position had changed lap to lap.
    That was pretty cool, it would be good if more races did that.
    Is that what you’ve got in mind ?

    Si Lancaster used to do that for loads of races, was good, let me see if I can find his site!

    Edit: Here, dunno if there’s databases on there you can use – drop him an email.

    Was what I was thinking of doing with it, I just want a good dataset to play with for some blogging/learning etc that isnt “Adventureworks” *in joke content*

    What I would really love to play with is a scrape of the UCI results page for World tour road racing:

    any web devs think it would be feasible?

    yes, email us at info@

    we can send them out in excel or the raw csv data. We have staggered starts though so it may have to be done category by category

    @titusrider did you have an luck with this? there’s a sight called athlinks.com that offers a database of race results. I would love to know how you’ve got on, visualizing race results is a big interest of mine
