Keep in mind these options are probably best viewed on a desktop pc rather than a mobile device. Chris can be tracked live on Trackimo. Check out his progress on https://app.trackimo.com/public-map/#/map?token=9vvr1rrch0dadvd6rbja8ef0qd
And Wimpie also shared his Followmee link. It updates every 10 mins and looks to be more effective than the Garmin link. See https://www.followmee.com/m/mapx.aspx?token=4101efb9-5c9d-4db6-9b90-d80320281a78
On the Miglia site
Riders can be tracked on the Miglia website in realtime as they pass the controls. This will not be used in anyway to have a final standings, only for riders friends and family to follow their progress during the ride online. See http://www.1001migliaitalia.it/
Wimpie will also can also be followed on live tracking through his Garmin for the full 1,600 km by clicking on this link: http://livetrack.garmin.com/session/d78ae5ff-8149-4622-8c3c-1c5639142f50/token/32259E47488D447A62EB61DF287DD948 (only available when they start on 16 Aug at 9pm; some test runs before then). If the communication is interrupted during the live tracking for whatever reason then he might have to post a new link, which we will also update here when available.
Wimpie will also be updating a Miglia 2016 Whatsapp group with photos, videos and commentary on his progress. If you want to be added to this group, text him on (084) 707-7772 and request to be added to the group. The group will be active for the duration of the Miglia. Should communication during the live track be interrupted, a new link will be posted here for the continuation of the broadcast.
