Great magazine but why does it have so many ads on its website that have nothing to do with cycling ????

The type being :- " the cameraman didn't know what to expect next ""

Really bloody annoying !!

    That's very kind of you to point that out

    I shall endeavour to locate said thread and in the meantime I shall wrap my self in sack cloth and ashes as a way of punishment for posting incorrectly

    Ads, Paywall, pay for paper copy. Pick one.

    I fully accept a bit of advertising as an essential part of getting free content...but those Outbrain adverts seem to be taking over the entire web. However, I still think the worst bit about CW online is the autostart vid clips that kick off when you are not expecting it, I am often left scrabbling around thinking "Where on earth is that bloody annoying noise coming from...?".
  • It is just incompetence. They have a highly targeted young affluent male audience in the U.K. Who spend too much money on cycling.

    I would expect a 6th form student to make a better job of monetising this website

    I hate when the site is laggy as a result of the ads and you end up unintentionally opening one. It's as if they are designed that way. The most annoying titles are 'how [insert name of a supposed celeb you've never heard of] looks now is literally jaw dropping'.
