    then dont go to the main site.

    what do you expect a cycling news site to do? ignore the tour?

    No, but the head line could be "great day at the tour ending in an exciting sprint" rather than the first thing you see as you go on to the site is a photo of cav, clearly just won and then a caption confirming it

    Reporting news means giving it away in the headline. It gets more clicks like that because most readers want to know more.

    If you don't want to find out until some point in the future, then avoid all forms of media until you do want to know.

    how about "bike rider wins cycle race" - you could use that one every day for three weeks...
