Hybrid News (butchered) for Bicycle Race Team

  1. http://carbonracing.org/
    I have posted this site over a year ago, but it has seen many changes since then.

    This website is/was my first big project. The team had a lot of requirements. There are many pages and many posts.

    Interesting bits:
    10 paying sponsors in a slideshow
    Random featured sponsor on homepage
    Featured hybrid news slider
    Events Calendar

  2. I used to compete in bicycle racing several years ago myself. I did the Tour de L'Abitibi Junior International stage race three consecutive years. I wonder if it's still around, lol...

    Amazing looking website btw! Definitely showcase material. I can't figure out how you can use both the twitter and Facebook widgets without slowing down your page load times. The Facebook widget seems to add around 4-5 seconds to my blog's page load time.

    Anyway, sites like Carbon Racing make me want to learn more about CSS--that's for sure.

  3. Thanks =) I'm not a bicycle racer myself, but my buddies are really into it.

    The constant obstacle for Carbon Racing is keeping the load time down.
    They want to see a ton of information on the homepage.
    I think on the homepage some 50 images load. I did my best to optimize the images and design.

    I have not yet followed through with more advanced techniques to lessen page load times -- this is something I may do in the future, if so, I will report back.

    Honestly, I have put in well over 200 hours on this site. It is my guinea pig site.
