Welcome to the beta version of the new Women & Golf website. Our web monkeys are still hard at work and welcome your feedback.  



Well, stone me. www.bikesportnews.com is a success. After only 16 months in proper existence, we have managed to make some friends with some people (sorry Tom, but that's the game) and get some visitors.
I have never been one to blow my own trumpet (if I could, I would never leave the house) but YES! I will make the bold statement here and now that www.bikesportnews.com is the biggest and best bike racing news site in the UK.
OK, Crash and MCN have massive traffic compared to us, but we don't do Formula One or soft-luggage. And we don't re-publish crap press-releases because we can't be arsed. We at least change the intro...
www.bikesportnews.com, in my belief, is THE motorcycle racing site in the UK.  Why? Because the paddock talks to us. We are allowed to team barbecues. We've had a wee in Scott Smart's motorhome (and not in the toilet...)
We've managed to to increase vists by 85 per cent from April-September, up page views by 119% over the same period, bump up pages per visit by 18 per cent, drop our bounce rate by 22 per cent and increase average time on site by 21 per cent (can you hear me, Bryn, Potski?).

And anyone who doesn't believe it can email me for the Google Analytics figures.

And Keith Huewen said (totally unpaid and unprompted): "I've been around bikes and racing for a long time, but am on the outside looking in at the moment. How nice it is that I can keep up with all those little stories, (and the big obvious ones of course), on your site. I love that; behind the scenes - instant rumour from the paddock - feel. And it's free! Great. More of the same please."
Come on Moody, Ryder, you can commentate better than that...
