Not sure why this hasn't been taken care of yet. This proposition and petition just make sense. If you race bikes, like watching races, or even just like women, get off your ass and sign this petition. It literally takes 30 sec (even if you're a slow typist like we are!) So what are you doing still reading this?! Just click here and sign off! There are currently less than 3000 signatures. COME ON! DO IT!
Here's the jist of what's going on (in case you don't know):
"We, the undersigned, find it regrettable that there is still a considerable disparity between the UCI minimum prize money for men and women. We understand that because competition in the men’s field is deeper, more places receive prize money. We do not understand why the women who are receiving prize money receive less than their male counterparts. Therefore we propose that the UCI show leadership and mandate equal prize money for the top five men and women. Article 3 of the UCI Constitution states: “The UCI will carry out its activities in compliance with the principles of: a) equality between all the members and all the athletes, license-holders and officials, without racial, political, religious, or other discrimination.” We ask the UCI to honor its commitment to equality."
Fuckin' A right!
