It’s just a fantastic website. I love the stories, not just the results. It is nice to stay up to date with the sport but not have the full-blown, blow-by-blow race breakdown.

“Damn you are good. Escape, Caley, all the amazing journalists. This is worth every hard earned dollar we pay to support the team. You tap into stories like nobody else ever has, but at the same time they seem so normal, more like conversation with someone with wits and brevity when it matters on a topic they know intimately well. Chapeau.
