A visual look at the UCI World ProTour stats

Based on my hugely popular UCI Pro Tour Stats post Smile with tongue outI have now turned the data into an interactive set of graphs using some really cool software called Tableau. Once again this data was taken from the publically available UCI archives. The only thing I have done is to represent the raw point score as percentage of the yearly total to even out the differences between the total points scored each year.

 

With all these charts you can

  • Select and highlight individual countries.
  • Use the slider bar to select a specific year.
  • Using the magnifying tools in the top left corner you can zoom into areas of interest or where the data is “crowded”
  • Move the mouse over each data point reveal all the data for each point.
  • if you get stuck with the filters you can click the “Revert all” button at the bottom of each infographic

Points vs. Riders

This is a comparison of how many riders each country has and how many points they have scored, the size of the circle represents the country’s population. So countries with a small circle above the trend line are considered to be the high performing countries.

Population vs. Riders

This is a comparison of how many riders each country has compared to its population, the size of the circle represents how many points the country has scored. So countries with a large circle below the trend line are considered to be the high performing countries.

The next two are more just to show the features of the Tableau software which I thought looked interesting.

Geo location of the riders.

This shows the data overlaid on a world map, showing where the riders come, the size of the circle represents how many riders come from the country. Remember you can use the magnifying tools to zoom in over Europe.

 

Geo location of points scored.

Similar to the previous one, this shows which country has scored points and how many.
