Where Is The Love?

While scrolling though the headlines on VeloNews at work this afternoon, I came across this:

Top women pros say they deserve minimum salary guarantee

Wait, they don't get one already? I thought the whole point of the UCI was to protect the riders? So, what? The women aren't real riders? They don't deserve the same rights and protections as the men? They mose certainly do! They train, they suffer, they race, they get hurt, the same as the men!

Un-flipping-believable. If I were a member, I'd be writing a passionate letter right now.

Until next time, ride long and keep the rubber-side down.
