Superb. Good on them.

As you say, don’t count on the top brass doing anything quickly. When the crowdfunding effort for the ladies’ Strade Bianchi was successful I had mixed emotions. It would be so easy to just think that it would continue.

Fortunately it appears as though winds of change are upon us, I don’t think they will get away with it for long, not without bad publicity at least.

Well I won’t hold my breath, but I’m cautiously optimistic…which is pretty @#$% optimistic for me!

Yep. A long way. But we’re FINALLY starting to see change, so we just need to keep things moving in the right direction by rattling the cage. The best thing we can do is make sure we watch women’s events in big numbers.
