Forced mobile theme. Some browsers will let you force a desktop theme, you have to enable it in settings. Unfortunately Safari will not so I'm using another browser.

Great way to jack up a good site! Oh well, Rennlist or Boxanet I guess.

They're just trying to keep up with Google and its policy regarding mobile sites and search results (that's my guess, anyway).
Hopefully they will add the "view desktop site" link soon.

Tap the address bar, then swipe downward on the middle of the screen (right above the onscreen keyboard), not the address bar.
