All the respect and appreciation for the effort you (and also Ronan) have put in, and continue to put in, over the years. I'm a big tech nerd at heart so even if CT is just you guys doing tech pieces and reviews, I'd still drop by to see what's new. Hope everything works out in the end.

Ronan now gone as well.

Essentially no one left except for Shoddy Dave and James.

*f##k* Outside tbh. They could have spent a minimum amount of effort in an attempt to sell or spin-off CT. They didn't.

Latest developments, last night Wade Wallace basically annouced he was re-launching CT with Caley Fretz, all-but-in-name.

Today, "A New CyclingTips Platform Is Coming" and the forums have been shuttered.

And one last shout-out to James who is STILL knocking out some damn fine content under this cloud of bullshitery.

Good luck to Wade and Caley, I will be subscribing to their new site.

CyclingTips is dead, as is Velonews.

Bravo to Wade and Caley! I hope they get a lot of the great writers back together and find new good ones. Also hope that James will move over to them - fingers crossed!

Hoping the new venture turns out as well as Defector has after the Deadspin exodus

Just noticed that the forums have been gutted to (or is this part of the infrastructure transfer ? One can hope).

That is just so much disrespect to paying customers...

I was surprised it lasted that long. I didn’t spend time posting, just read some friends active there but last weeks was 90% bitching (rightfully) on layoff and how to cancel subscription and how old were the articles.

Now it was a very good forum platform, not sure who was behind it but I would love WW to use it .

It was a very good place to discuss everything cycling, until the changes at CT became the only discussion topic.

I hope things work out and it seems like it will. That is why a good layoff may be what a really good employee needs to take the next step in life.

I know, I've been fired more times than quit and every single time, it worked out very very well for me. I hope my current boss does not fire me. By far, he is the best one I have ever had. One of the perks when you open your own business.
