Men's and women's cycling to have prize money parity

The UCI has today announced that starting in 2013 the majority of men's and women's world championships will share equal prize money.

Beginning with the cyclo-cross Worlds in Louisville on February 2 and 3, all disciplines, with the exception of the road team time trial, will have parity.

UCI President Pat McQuaid welcomed the decision, saying no distinction should be made between the achievements of men and women: "The Management Committee’s approval is a simple but very important step forward in our effort to guarantee a healthy and fair future for our sport."
