I’m not for that women (or men) should get a job to make the workplace equal between men and women. I’m for the best one for the job. Everyone should be worth the same no matter of gender or skin colour. Cyclocross is a sport where women and men aren’t worth the same, sadly but true.
But it can be changed. So let’s give everyone a the same chances. The girl on the picture for example, she isn’t so old in the sport but she is a girl you should know of if you’re interested in cyclocross.
Here is both men’s and women’s race from Ronse yesterday:
Todays racing wasn’t as good as I hoped for but good anyway. Zdenek Stybar came second:
And you see, 1min 11 seconds after the winner, Kevin Pauwels. That’s hard. Blame routine as Stybar did some mistakes he shouldn’t have done if he was racing cyclocross all season instead of just showing up for a couple of weeks. But love to see him back even if it’s just for now. Last belgian race for him today, just the Czech Championship in 1,5 weeks left for his season.
Results (happy that Niels Albert didn’t caught Stybar even if it was close.
1. Kevin Pauwels – Sunweb-Napoleon Games (new sponsor)
2. Zdenek Stybar – Omega Pharma-Quick Step
3. Niels Albert – BKCP-PowerPlus
And then the nice video from Petitesrennes from the women’s world cup in Namur. He knows how to show how hard and awesome CXracing is. Just change the top of the podium from Katie Compton to Sanne van Paassen and it would be perfect 😉
