“I still can’t believe it. I think for the next few days I need to relax a bit with my family and also have a bit of calm to realize what I’ve done. It’s been amazing what we’ve done this week. We’ve had a lot of ups, also some downs, and we show how strong our team is and how motivated we are. We become stronger”, said the champion cyclist who was surprised by the final result.

Although the results of the biggest competitions in professional sport have achieved excellent results with admirable athletes and trajectories, the difference in the values of the Tour de France prizes for women and men is calling attention to the disproportion given to cyclists.

According to data provided by the competition’s official website, the three winners of the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift receive a total prize equivalent to 250,000 euros, with first place receiving 50,000 euros, second 25,000 euros and third 10,000 euros. It is worth remembering that the competition contains one of the biggest bonuses in the category.

Already, in the men’s match, athletes receive practically double what is paid in the Tour de France Femmes. The reports indicate the total used in the competition valued at 2.5 million euros, with the big winner receiving around 500,000 euros, that is, the available calculation states that each kilometer traveled by the cyclists was worth around 146.8 euros and for women, 52.3 euros.
