Bike porn? Nope, really porn.

Cycling Weekly has deleted a tweet which featured a porn pic next to an unoffensive story about Chris Froome. 

The magazine quickly tweeted: "Apologies for the previous tweet anyone who was offended. We have now re-secured our account."

However, a screen grab is already circulating on the internet. (The original photograph was not blurred.)

BikeBiz has asked Cycling Weekly how such an illustration could be, er, inserted in a standard news story. The mag has not yet come back to us.

In early September the Cycling Weekly editor had to issue an apology after an "idiotic" caption. Club rider Hannah Noel was described in the magazine as a "token attractive woman". Simon Richardson said the sexist caption beside the Hinckley Cycling Race Club member was "not a reflection of the culture in the CW office."
