This email and comments are a bit much... Vital is a news site and it's there obligation to report the news. If they didn't report the news of gravity MTB timely, I probably wouldn't visit the site.

ESPN, Nytimes, WSJ, etc. all report the winner of major events in real-time. Shit, I get a push notification from the times and journal within 30 seconds of the Pats winning the superbowl or the raptors winning the nba title. If you're comparing to other sports, you could argue that Vital should probably do more live reporting on the results. At a minimum Sven could get some decent internet and upload the pictures faster (I'm kidding. The coverage is awesome).

Am I know going to get pissed off about the Syndicate posting an IG story about Greg on the podium after the race? This is a live event. Watch it live. I get people don't want to sacrifice their day of riding to watch, but are 8 races a year really going to blow up your riding schedule for the summer (that's about 16 hours...)? Watch it live or stay off social media and mtb news sites until you see the replay.

If you have time read, analyze, and comment on the leverage curve missteps on the latest yeti, I am guessing you had some time to watch the race...

does anyone expect the results of the superbowl to be withheld by espn, nbc, pbs, hbo, nytimes, drudge report, pennysaver and the appalachian gazette until everyone watches the game? fwiw, we don't spoil WC race results in titles or even the subtitles (text that social media picks up and could spoil). we haven't for a while. and re: the winning bike comment below, we wait at least 6-8 hours until after the race to post those. the absurdity of getting riled up over a hardline QUALIFIER spoiler is pretty awesome, IMO.

We are a welcoming and understanding portal, that lets the user decide what they want to see. It couldn't be easier to make sure you get to watch the race without spoilers, just don't visit news sites or social media until you've seen it - it's the easiest decision in the world. My point is that it is ultimately up to the users to take advantage of all the tools and technology at their disposal to shape their experience, without resorting to demanding that the whole internet should conform to their particular viewing preferences.

The only time this has been a problem for me is when RedBull posted "See Loic's Winning Run" video right on the page where you go to see the replay. All news sites should be expected to post the results imo.

If I really wanted to avoid the results I'd just not visit Vital / PB until I've watched the race.
