Georgia Gould Starts Petition for Equal Prize Money

U.S. mountain bike and cyclo-cross pro Georgia Gould has started a petition asking for equal prize money for women and men:

I am sending a petition to the UCI to make their minimum prize money equal for the top-5 men and women. Here is the link:

I would very much appreciate any help spreading the word!

Thanks - Georgia Gould

To: Union Cycliste Internationale (U.C.I.)

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.
