It's fairly simple to scrape the tracking data from your personal page 
and publish it elsewhere. I've done it previously to support an off-road 
race team, so fans could track progress 'live' on the team website.

They do (or did) seem to make regular minor changes to their site, 
presumably to make this sort of thing tricky. I don't remember if there 
was abetter way to do it, but if there was, it wasn't free.
