QudUp combines our passion for technology and endurance sports.

 

Our first product MapTrack came to us on a mountain bike trip in 2008. Finding good trails by word of mouth and guide books meant flying blind. Things would be easier if we could just see a trail video, a map and interact with both. We looked around for something that did this, there wasn’t, so we built it. Today, content like the Leadville 100 footage helps racers experience the course before they ride it.

In late 2010, we built RaceDay as a way to capture the enthusiasm and hard work of our racer community. Using technology from MapTrack, we generate individualized videos by stitching together clips of a participant from around the race course. The videos are put up on our website for viewing and sharing with others. So far we've made videos for several thousand participants, from mountain biking to ski racing.

Changing the way events are remembered. One video at a time.
