Why is the quality of the photos displayed on this website SO BAD.. I understand the need to have the website load with some reasonable speed, but the photos have been "dumbed down" to the point where they look like they are taken by amateurs.

I look at a lot of other sites and photos taken at the same races are higher quality, often photos taken by the same photographer...

Explanation please......

Hi Jasmine. Can you give us an example of photos which look bad on our site but good on another?

lost me, what does dumbed down mean..

they have all been optimised for the net, most are around 50kb each which is a perfect balance of quality v speed.

if you want high quality photos go to a photo site? Its a news site, photos are just there to compliment the articles.

(even if the captions are sometimes amusing)
