Mid-Atlantic Cyclocross series will have equal payouts for top women

Women racing in the The Champion System Mid-Atlantic Cyclocross series will take home the same cash prizes as their male counterparts this season, according to Series Director Mike Hebe. 

A win in the Elite category must now pay $494 at the series’ nine UCI-sanctioned races. At the series’ two non-UCI races, the top payout of $250 will be supplemented to achieve parody with the Elite Men. 

Elite women are the only racers to benefit from the increased cash bonuses. Amateur women in the Cat 3/4 and the 45+ categories will have a shot at $25 "gambler’s primes" for the first rider to reach the bell lap.
