Autosport

Recommended by: Noldi

Casual browsers can keep up with the latest motorsport news for free, but petrolhead stat fans must take out a subscription to plunge into Autosport’s detailed data banks. A manageable £3.75 a month gets you access to race action, lap times, high-resolution photographs and in-depth analysis.

Cycling Weekly

Recommended by: anskyber

“The one sport I participate in is one of the most savage there is: cycling,” writes anskyber. “This minority sport is covered well by the informative and ever-changing Cycling Weekly website, which deals with a full range of cycling interests.” The site has free news, forums, competitions and links to kit suppliers. If you want to read one of the bike reviews, however, you'll have to pay £3 for a PDF download.

Cricinfo

Recommended by: techie4me

“For the latest on cricket being played around the world, it's got to be Cricinfo,” writes techie4me. And it really is that simple for cricket enthusiasts: Cricinfo is where you go for ball-by-ball coverage and team news, as well as longer pieces with an international flavour. It's superbly knowledgeable, if occasionally a little rough in writing style.

Russell Brand

Recommended by: Mark Hattersley

And now for a slightly more whimsical suggestion. “I don't follow many sports sites,” Mark admits. “But I like to read Russell Brand's blog, simply because it's so funny.” Recent vaguely sports-related topics include vests, Morrissey and Fabio Capello's undead translator.

The BBC

Recommended by: Andy

Andy was the first of dozens to recommend the Beeb's massively popular sports section. “For some reason the BBC's cricket coverage is always a couple of overs behind other sites, but getting to read what Boycott et al have to say about the proceedings makes up for the slowness,” he writes. With the enormous breadth and expertise
on offer here, it doesn't get much better for general sports news. Or, as Stuartli puts it: “No contest.”

“I frequently use the forums at Runner's World,” writes Nolsj. “The members are great in encouraging me to keep running.” It's also excellent for training tips and advice on kit.

Curling Today

Recommended by: wee eddie

And anskyber thought cycling was an obscure choice. This blog, the online face of Scottish Curler magazine, offers thoughtful and occasionally barbed commentary on the latest curling action. “The governing body isn’t really that proactive about update material,” wee eddie explains. “This blog is one way of keeping up to date with what goes on within the sport.”

Eurosport

Recommended by: wellshgit

Several readers put in a good word for Eurosport, with wellshgit pipping MCE2K5 to the post. “It covers everything from F1 to the gee-gees,” the latter explains – and we could add handball, poker and so-called extreme sports to the list of pursuits covered in admirable depth. The blogs are extremely well written.

Soccerbase

Recommended by: bumfacepaul

It's the dullest-looking site here by a country mile, but Soccerbase can't be beaten for pure football facts. “Although we're a sad bunch, this site is perfect for football statisticians, because you can find out just about any stat about any player or team,” bumfacepaul explains. If you want to find out your full-back's weight or Grimsby Town's all-time top scorer, this is the place to go – and, for sheer knowledge, Soccerbase wins this month's Gold award.
