    I was wondering why the stages are so short? This Sunday marks the Maratona dles Dolomites and it seems strange that nearly 300 women (based upon last years stats) will be doing a tougher route than anything undertaken in the biggest race in the womens pro calendar.

    I know Emma Pooley (and other female riders) have done events like the Haute series, which is even tougher again. Just seems to be selling the pro ladies a bit short.

      As far as I know, Women’s race stages have a maximum length significantly shorter than men’s stage races.

    • Just another example of the inequality for women in cycling! In other ‘modern’ sports such as Triathlon the men and women are on equal footing. As we well know a women does the same distance ironman as a man! Saying this though you would have to say that evidence of super aggressive racing at the Womens World Tour as opposed to some of the mens races that don’t heat up until the finale shows that maybe the super long format of some of the mens racing doesn’t help?
