I'm super confused because everybody in this post has a valid viewpoint. The "See Bruni's winning run" was the worst though. I should think Vital, etc would NOT put the winners name in thr title because it would force the reader to have to CLICK the article... and take the BAIT to find out who won? So...more

Whether your opinion is right or wrong, there are a fair number of your readers who agree with Peter. We just don't act like dicks about it...

Yup. Vital posts spoilers in their headlines. Pinkbike doesn't. Which means I'll visit Vital in the days leading up to an event (because Vital Raw vids are the tits), but once the event has happened, I stick to Pinkbike until I've learned the results on my own terms.

Shrug. It's no skin off my back....more

I’m in the don’t post the results in the headlines camp. I avoid Vital from race morning until I’ve gotten to watch the race, which could be days later, and visit PB instead. That way I can keep enjoying all the other bike related stuff but not have the race semi ruined for me.

You can fiercely defend your position all you want. The reality is spoiling races is going to pull traffic away from your website. And posting an inflammatory defense of the strategy and telling us we're all babies for wanting to both enjoy the suspense of our favorite sporting event AND still get to...more

It wouldn't be that difficult to make the headline read "race results here," Instead of "Bob Bitchin' wins the race," would it? I mean, that way, the various editors of the news outlets can continue to make the world a better place for Peter. And the rest of us would be clicking the link anyway.

Typically I visit Vital and PB every day. If there was a race on the weekend that I wasn't able to watch (and sometimes won't find time to watch for a week or more) then I avoid visiting Vital until I've seen the race because I've had results spoiled on this site in headlines and winning bike article...more

Peter should have worded it better because I feel that his point has been totally almost ignored. As you can see from the responses there's a little bit of Peter in a lot of us here.
And whilst your response is far more eloquent, for me it's just as childish, has an air unprofessionality/arrogance and...more

Ha! The key to aging with grace is looking terrible from a young age... then the bar is already low. You too bud, you know where to find me when you have a minute to ride.

Great test. Biggest surprise is that Joel is still only 36. Bastard!

Interesting,Pinkbike actually did the same thing and now they don't post who won on their front page.If I haven't seen the race I definitely don't go to Vital because of this very reason.Never got to where I thought my opinion mattered so much I thought they should change what they do for just...more

These are so much better than any other DH media out there. It's like being at the race. I know the six minute version is "more boring" than the shorter, more intense Vital RAW of the past, but getting to see rider after rider trying the same section gives a much more...more
