    I've just tried several times to logon to my favorite cyclosportive site http://www.cyclosport.org/ and received this message;

    Due to increasing competition and legal reasons, we can no longer continue normal operation.
    We would therefore refer you to the http://www.iaco.org.uk/

    Have I missed something? Hope they haven't gone for good.

    There's a thread about it here

    I think they're sort of the same organisation.

    Cyclosport sent round a pretty stupid email a couple of days ago, but I am struggling to think why it could lead to the site being closed for legal reasons.

    Yep, numpty.org ought to cover the whole spectrum of cycling organisations. You can see now why the UCI is in such a mess!! :angry:
