Luna Pro Team Xterra Triathletes Shonny V., Danelle K., and Suzie S. will be racing for the US Championship Title on Saturday, September 22nd in Ogden, UT.
You can track your Luna Pros throughout the race- (remember the race starts at 9am Mountain Time) by following the instructions below!
XTERRA and Luck Stone are teaming up to bring fans a comprehensive slate of coverage for the XTERRA USA Championship race on September 22nd at XTERRALIVE.com.
One screen will feature live video feeds from several spots around the course, another will showcase a social media (GIS) map of the course with detailed positioning and tweets from strategically positioned spotters; and every elite athlete is being equipped with a GPS tracking device that will allow followers to see their every movement. The “shadow” device reports location, speed, distance, and elevation.
Note that the pros can’t swim with the shadow, but the race clock will start right at 9am MST (8am PST, 11am EST), and viewers can expect the shadows to start moving around 9:20am or so.
For the Social Media Map we’ve found the Google Chrome browser seems to be the best browser for viewing (and it won’t run on Internet Explorer). For the GPS Tracker you can download a free app for the iPhone that is pretty cool. Just go to http://www.xterralive.com and follow the various links for more info.
For those on-site at Snowbasin Resort we’ll have big screen TV’s set-up displaying all the action.
Also of note, fans are encouraged to share their experiences via twitter with hashtag #xterraUTAH.
