Thanks to everyone who downloaded, shared, liked or tweeted the NISMO ‪‎LeMans‬ Spotter Guide.

Easily our most successful download with over 100,000 downloads plus whatever Nissan achieved via their press release. There is normally a small burst after the race (assume people downloading new ‘clean’ copies). In 2014 we had about 15k post race to the end of December!

Thanks to NISMO for their support and partnership of the Le Mans, WEC and ELMS guides. Without their support, there simply ould be no guides.

STATEMENT: Tour de France Spotter Guide

It is with regret, I will not be releasing a Spotter Guide for the 2015 Tour de France.

Despite an awesome response from 2/3rds of the teams for reference and rider lists, one team, Team BMC, refused to participate in the guide or approve their inclusion unless I was fully licensed by ASO, the organiser of the Tour, essentially becoming an official guide.

This is the first time in eleven years that ANY team has had an issue with a FREE Fan Spectator Guide. Most are very helpful and welcoming of extra exposure, but I have to respect their decision.

While I have media accreditation with the ASO, with less than a week to go before the event, I have been unable to get a response from the organisers for their approval. They quite rightly have bigger things to deal with!
