    By way of comparison, Kimberley Wells picked up $12,000 Canadian dollars (EUR8,000+) for winning the Gastown Grand Prix crit in Canada last week.

      Gavin, Kimberly actually got 2nd. Tina Pic won. But you’re right, the prize money is insulting

        Whoops! I’m no expert (clearly), but it seems like pro women, other than perhaps marquee riders like Vos and Armistead, can potentially make more money racing in North America than in Europe. I know people do not get into pro women’s cycling for the money, but maybe riders/teams need to follow the dollars to North America and the perceived ‘prestige’ of European racing be damned?
