Women in bicycle racing

Today's edition of the Belleville News-Democrat has an article about the St. Louis Cycling Club's women's team and its current season.

The article talks about the team's successes -- at least one team member finished in the top three in 19 of its 20 races -- and the team's struggles -- the lack of interest in women's racing.

"We get less promotions, less cash, less everything," Granite City racer Sharon Jones told the News-Democrat.

I'm afraid I'm as guilty as the bigger cycling news outfits about not giving attention to women's racing.
