2016 Strade Bianche

    Hi Neal, I’m just thinking that every other cycling website posts the race result as the headline of the article like you’ve done here. Not all of us can sacrifice a night’s sleep to watch the race live or have Foxtel and can therefore record it. But as soon as i log onto CT your headline gives away the result. Have you considered posting a non-spoiler article headline, say, “Strade Bianche Recap” where the first thing you scroll to into the article is the recap video? That way those of us who can’t watch it live still get to live the excitement of watching the race unfold. It could be another good way for CT to stand out from the pack.

    • Seriously. I make sure I hit steephill.tv before loading CT – race results all over the main page.

        I get that, but CT is Australian born and bred and I’d like the support them over foreign websites. But not if it keeps ruining the excitement of watching a race.

      I couldn’t agree more, I look forward to reading race reports and results in the Magazines I have a bi-monthly subscription with. Everytime CT publishes a race report, they’re taking yet another small bit of joy away from my life. Unlike some, i’ve made some effort to reclaim my joy and i’ve stopped visiting this site all together. It’s not rocket science @tyronanton:disqus

    • Folks – if I may jump in here. We’ve debated this issue for a long time and we decided that in order for people to find the news (via headlines and photos) there are going to be inevitable spoilers. This content is delivered to people via google and social media as much as it is via our homepage. We might consider having a “non spoiler mode” homepage in the future, but for now you’re probably best to have a web and social media blackout period if you don’t want to know the results of the race.

        Hi Wade, thanks for the insight. I’m, of course speaking from an outsider position and just putting forward a viewpoint that I wasn’t sure if you guys had considered seriously. I guess my thought process is that I can go to steephill.tv or cyclingweekly.co.uk where they post ‘highlight’ videos that don’t spoil anything in the title, but by the time i arrive at one of their sites and watch the video I’ll just stay there, instead of coming to CT. My thoughts were along the lines of the article being titled “Strade Bianche: How The Race Unfolded” or something similar, then the first thing you see is the highlights or recap video and then a detailed written description below.

      you can’t expect them to write headlines that aren’t headlines just so you can read the site and not have results spoiled when you haven’t watched the race yet.

      I understand where you’re coming from – I’ve been in the same situation – but it’s a big ask.

      • Tyron Anton

        An Australian website would be wise to cater to Australian audiences. Like most I’ll stay up late to watch the Classics and TdF but it seriously messes with my work output the following day, as it does with anyone else who braved the late night broadcast. I’d love to watch every race live but it’s not practical. I also love CT and want to keep using their content but when all they do is give away the results in the headline then I’ll go elsewhere for my cycling news.

    Cancellara sprints on the hoods again :P

  • a different ben

    Cancellara can’t count – he’s only won 3 editions, not 6. Sheesh, is he ever going to struggle after retirement!
