Riedel Communications aids Tour de France

Team Garmin recently utilised a radio solution from Riedel Communications for the 99th Tour de France.

The specialist for real-time communications and media networks installed a combination of conventional trunked radios and NanoTalk for enabling the team communication within Garmin. More than 12 vehicles of Team Garmin, who were this year’s Giro d’Italia winners, were equipped with a Mototrbo radio solution, enabling communication between the individual vehicles.

Mototrbo is designed to provide conventional trunked radio and is a help for any application that requires high quality speech transmission. The radio solution also offers long battery power cycles and integrated GPS module making Mototrbo a solution for applications such as the Tour de France.

Team Garmin also used NanoTalk radios for the communication between team vehicles and cyclists. NanoTalk is a small radio that has been especially developed for applications such as pro-cycling. The radio can be attached to the cyclist’s helmets and is said to provide trouble-free communications. A special branding of the radios offered advertising space for the Austrian Otztal region.
