Fastest Cycling News Websites

Posted on

Whenever an important news item comes out, it is always interesting to see which website is the first to publish. For example the UCI press releases about Saxo Bank keeping it’s license. Velofacts looked for the websites with the earliest news releases.

Press release: The UCI Licence Commission confirms Team Saxo Bank licence

Most news websites supply  their news items via an RSS feed. A feed contains a summary of the latest news items on a website. Each item contains

  • Title
  • Date / time
  • Hyperlink
  • Short summary

Velofacts reads the important  feeds every hour. If a feed is not available, velofacts will crawl the webpage containg the news.

Below is an indication at what time the websites published the news about Saxo Bank keeping their license. The times are in the last column. These are the times from the rss feeds, and cannot be confirmed. The “before” time is confirmed, because the items were read at that time. was added to the list, but it isn’t the easiest website to crawl. It is one of the best informed websites (if not the best), but their website is poor. It is full of ads. and always seem to to be right on the news. The two french websites and deserve a recommendation. For English cycling news, is the go-to website.  It is the best website in the entire list.
