Total Ranking

If you have a closer look into the pilot listing, you will discover a lot of various information:

Pilots with a dark background are currently displayed on the map. Click on the list item to toggle the visibility. If a pilot has a red label next to his profile image, this pilot is currently under investigation by the official race control. This could be due to airspace infringements, incorrect turnpoint completion etc. Once a pilot is marked with a yellow label, he pulled his night pass and is therefor allowed to hike through the night. 

The coloured line below the pilot's name indicates the team and track color. Next you'll see the current status of each pilot. Possible states are: Flying, Hiking, Resting and Sleeping. The distance next to the activity icon estimates the pilots distance to Monaco. If the pilots are flying and are activated, their speed and altitude is displayed below the glider icon.

More Options

By clicking on the more information icon (three vertical dots) you can get even more features, like centering the athlete on the map or enabling the follow mode. Both options automatically switch the panel to the profile page where you have several more options.
When you select an athlete to follow, the Live Tracking map will center at the position of this athlete and the highlight color in the ranking will differ from the other athletes.
To unfollow either click on "unfollow" on the profile page or move around on the map.
