Women's Tour of Britain gets equal status with men's race

 
Quote
The women's Tour of Britain is set to attract top riders after being given the same status as the men's race.
World cycling's governing body, the UCI, has given the event 2.1 status for its launch in 2014.
The race, to be staged over five days in May, will be separate to the men's event held in September.

"We are absolutely delighted that the UCI have awarded us 2.1 status for this exciting new event," said Guy Elliott, director of event organisers SweetSpot.

The UCI grades all men's and women's stage races - any event that takes place over several days - in four categories: WT, 2.HC, 2.1 and 2.2.


Though announced previously, this is great news for the Women's peloton. So good in fact I believe it deserves its own thread. Interestingly enough the two races will run at different times. The women's one being in May. As a Brit I do hope this indicates the direction that the country is heading in, in this era and love of cycling.

    Of course, if this turns out someday to be the industry standard integrated handlebar-computer-braking solution then I'll eat my kevlar-reinforced aerodynamic hat.
