I would like Albers to explain why the women's purse was so much lower than the men's. Grandview always bragged about equal prize money for the ladies and attracted a large, talented field in years past. This year had a pittance of ladies' prize money and a paltry field as a result. So few participants (20-25?), in fact, that they had to include ALL categories in one race, resulting in separate results for different categories during the same "competetive" race.
The men, on the other hand, had 50+ in the featured Pro I-II. Money went to the top 25. Also enough male riders for separate Cat III, Cat IV, & Cat V races.

Its nice to see these races being organized in a way that benefits the competitors as well as the organizers. I hope th compete in some cycling races in my future and hope that I might make it to one of these events.
