"There have been a lot of good signs around cyclocross this season - with the World Cups streamed for free on the UCI youtube, and equal prizes for the women and men at the World Championships - and just as the season closes, here’s some more - from this year, the Koppenbergcross, part of the huge bpost bank trofee series, will be the first European C1 race to pay equal prize money for the women and men, thanks to a sponsor from the USA, Maryland-based Twenty20 Cycling shops. European Champion and 2013 Koppenbergcross winner Helen Wyman, who helped make this happen, came to the Café to tell us about the impact of this on the sport."
