Equal prize money for men, women at worlds



World cycling's governing body is introducing equal prize money for men and women at most world championship events.

The decision takes effect from January, with the International Cycling Union ruling that "no distinction should be made between the achievements of men and women."

UCI President Pat McQuaid says it "is a simple but very important step forward in our effort to guarantee a healthy and fair future for our sport."

The UCI management committee's ruling applies to all cycling disciplines apart from the road team time trial.
