Chrissie Wellington: UCI Boss Has A Good Influence On Women’s Cycling

August 26th, 2014 — 2:56pm

Cycling is no longer considered to be a sport in which only men could participate. Today, women in large numbers are engaging in cycling. Women cyclists have turned out to be way better than men cyclists.

At the professional cycling level, UCI boss- Brian Cookson has had a very good influence on Women’s cycling according to Chrissie Wellington (Ironman Champion). Wellington has always supported women’s cycling and has campaigned in order to ensure that the coverage and reporting of women’s cycling is done efficiently.

In the month of July 2014, Chrissie Wellington was also closely associated with the La Course by Le Tour de France which was held in Paris. La Course was the very first edition of women’s professional cycling race. Therefore Wellington had to be there to support it.

Wellington is of the opinion that ever since Brian Cookson has become the UCI boss, he has not only had a very positive influence on cycling as a whole but on women’s cycling especially.

In Cookson’s manifesto, he mentioned that he would give priority to women’s cycling and after becoming the UCI boss he has been trying to keep up his promise.

Chrissie Wellington along with Marianne Vos, Emma Pooley and Kathryn Bertine started an initiative called the La Tour Entier to help boost women’s cycling and improve it further.

It was because of the La Tour Entier campaign that the La Course by Le Tour de France was started this year in July. La Course is the first step towards the realization of the aim for creating a Tour de France for women professional cyclists.

Wellington was very pleased and felt really emotional for the response that La Course was able to attract. The media coverage the event garnered was absolutely pleasing and impressive. The event was won by Marianne Vos (Rabo-Liv cycling team).
