Sports/Cycling

CyclingNews wapreview.mobi/tc.php?u=live.cyclingnews.com The best live Tour de France coverage on the web. Cyclingnews’ old mobile site at wap.cyclingnews.com live seems to be down and  is  redirecting to the non-mobile version. Although not a mobile site, it’s a fairly small (30 KB)  and simple page which works reasonably well with Opera Mini and other full-web mobile browsers like Symbian Webkit. If you are using a feature phone you will probably need to use a transcoder to view the site. The link above is to a landing page that offers the option to view the Cyclingnews Live page with or without transcoding.
