RSS Feed timeout - How to handle the issue

Hi Experts

I am using ASP.NET RSS Toolkit to get feed from different website i.e. Twitter, HMRC etc.

System.IO.MemoryStream str = (MemoryStream)RssToolkit.Rss.DownloadManager.GetFeed(requestUri);

I have about 10 websites that I get the feed from and display to the client but when one of the feed break or website is not responding my whole site goes down and I am getting 404 error until the feed starts working fine.

On my website I have async call to an .asmx file that return data in json format and updated to the UI.

Currently certain RSS feed URL takes more then 90 sec to return and this causes the Application pool to recycle and bring the application down.
