"As I read Giorgia and Chloe’s comments – now as an industry executive, a sponsor of the sport, and Giorgia’s bike sponsor – I see the lack of attention to women’s cycling from a different perspective. Don’t get me wrong – it’s still personal – but add to that my experience in the bike business, and I now see more than inequality. I see a missed business opportunity for the whole bicycle industry."
Bicycle Retailer and Industry News: Karen Bliss: New Year, new challenge
Really interesting editorial from former pro & current Marketing VP for Fuji Bikes, Karen Bliss, on the ongoing debate over women’s cycling and the UCI, and what she thinks the UCI should do about it. I don’t agree with all her suggestions (I think rather than mandate women’s teams, make the UCI Team Rankings count on combined women’s & men’s scores, as in MTB) but I do on most! And they’re from a point of view of not just equality but also business sense!
