hatchMAP partnered with the Red Hook Crit bike race to produce a timing and scoring app for live scoring of one of the most exciting bike races in the world. The RHC series took place in multiple cities (at the time Brooklyn, Barelona, and Milan) and featured some of the top athletes from all of these cities and more. Because the race was so fast (and at night!) there was a huge value in giving live timing updates to the big crowds watching from the sidelines.
We built mobile apps for iOS and Android (as well as a timing and scoring backend, see below!). The apps interfaced with popular social media to show updates on the race, as well as our timing and scoring platform to show live and previous race results by lap. Watching the race fans checking the app every time we watched the peloton pass was one of the most exciting moments in the company’s history!
