Prize money for the 2017 HSBC UK National Women’s Road Series will be equal to the men’s Spring Cup and Grand Prix Series, British Cycling confirmed today.

British Cycling’s director of cycling, Jonny Clay, said:

“We’re committed to getting one million more women on bikes by 2020 and equal prize money was a big part of this ambition when we launched our strategy three years ago.

“More and more women are getting involved in cycling, particularly at a competitive level, and we are confident that moves such as this one are heading in the right direction of addressing the historic gender divide in our sport.”
