After seeing a ton of great graphic work being done looking at the FIFA World Cup 2010, Jerome Daksiewicz realized that he had not seen any interesting graphic work visualizing the 2010 Tour de France, his personal major sporting event of choice. Thus, he self-initiated a brief to illustrate some of the data heap found with le Tour. He started with an introductory graphic illustrating all teams and riders at the 2010 TdF including riders countries of origin, team members, bike sponsorship, etc.
The work is driven by strong typography and a very reduced color scheme. The readability of some parts suffers a bit of the fine details, at least in the web version of the graphics.
