Cyclingnews.com is a website providing cycling news and race result owned by Future.

History[edit]

In 1995 Australian Bill Mitchell, a keen cyclist and professor of economics at the University of Newcastle, created the website titled "Bill’s Cycling Racing Results and News" after finding there was a need for fast-breaking news and race results in English-speaking countries.[1][2] In 1999 Sydney-based publishing company Knapp Communications purchased the website from Mitchell,[3] and in July 2007 they sold it to British publisher Future plc for £2.2m.[4][5][6] In July 2014 it was bought by Immediate Media Company, along with the print-only Procycling magazine.[7] In February 2019, Immediate Media sold its cycling titles back to Future.[8]
