08 Jul Alithya France: a team player in the world of sports
Once again this year, Alithya is helping organize the Tour de France, drawing on its five solid years of experience working with L’Equipe 24, the online edition of L’Equipe, and with sporting event organizer A.S.O.
Cyclists set off from Leeds, England, on July 5 in an international race that will culminate on the Champs-Elysées in Paris, France, on July 27. After three stages in England finishing in London, the 20 teams will turn their handlebars toward France, passing through Lille, Nancy, Grenoble, Nîmes, Carcassonne, and Pau, with a one-stage spin through Belgium.

Alithya keeps things rolling
Alithya has been working behind the scenes on the Tour de France website for the past few months, integrating content in four different languages, including news and information on routes, travel guides, teams, riders, pitfalls, highlights, and photo and video galleries. But there’s no time to rest—Alithya will go the distance as new content is generated throughout the race, leading up to the final sprint in Paris.
With L’Equipe 24 handling the design, development, and maintenance of the back-office systems, Alithya is responsible for all the front-end components of the website. This includes gathering content from various sources, integrating and formatting it in keeping with style guides, creating the graphic elements for the master layout, managing posts, and more, all within very tight deadlines.
Alithya also provides graphic design, integration, testing, target preparation, and routing services for the Tour de France newsletters.
The Web integration team supports other bike races organized by A.S.O., in addition to providing Web services on the websites of the Dakar rally, the Tour de France à la Voile sailing race, and some 20 public events like the Paris Marathon and the Roc d’Azur mountain biking competition.
Alithya proves to be a team player in the world of sports.
