I love cycling for the "cast of thousands" aspect, and the huge variety - I love the Classics, the climbing stages, 'Cross, track and any kind of escape artists. Above all I'm a fangirl of the women's racing, for their tactics of "If in doubt, ATTTAAAAAACK!!!"

The difference between prize earnings in men's and women's cyclocross


Over on Cyclephotos, Balínt Hamvas has worked with Dan Seaton to try to work out how much the top women cyclocross stars earn from prizes. Balínt made the women's prize money image on the right-hand side - it's just based on prize money, not start-fees or sponsorship deals, like the men's equivalent was. Click through to the Cyclephotos link for how they came to this figure - the picture above, including the men's prize calculations is by CX Hairs:
