Over at the Boulder Report, Joe Lindsey offers a detailed run-down on the dissolution of the Garmin women's team. He explains the significance of the BigMat shortfall, and how the timeline worked so badly for the women's team. He also wonders what it would take to make women's cycling work.
The news that a top women’s team is in serious financial trouble should spark a conversation about how to make women’s racing work. If you can solve that, could you also make men’s racing better?
Of course, being all coy and stuff, Lindsey doesn't answer the question. To be fair, there is no easy answer to this one, is there?
