It all began in November 2014 when I, a Netherlands-based entrepreneur in the web development and software market, came into contact with Lee Fancourt. We had one thing in common – cycling, but the one thing that was missing was a decent website for Lee. After a period of development we launched Lee’s website at the end of January 2015 on https://www.leefancourt.com/
While Lee was training and focussing on his 10 upcoming Guinness World Record attempts, I started developing the tracking software. There are a few reasons why I decided to start developing our own tracking software, one of them being that the Spot Widget, which is provided by Spot, only shows the last 50 waypoints. In a challenge such as Lee’s Nordkoff, Norway to Tarifa, Spain (4,200 miles), 50 waypoints are just a tiny fraction of the route thereby giving it the wrong perspective. In addition to this, the use of custom tracking software gives full flexibility. It allows development and growth where needed.
The tracker proved to be successful when first used in a real challenge in June 2015.
