DotWatcher is the home for the best insight, analysis, and conversation from around the bikepacking community, published alongside everything needed to follow the action of the world’s biggest races.

For a long time, the best bikepacking coverage has been found in the forums and Facebook groups of avid dot watchers, who would scour social media and tracking maps and share their thoughts with the community. DotWatcher is a place where racers and fans can continue this conversation alongside tracking data and social media, making it easier to follow races and for newcomers to discover the sport.
