Prudhomme criticized for “all women’s races make us lose money” – fr


Tour de France director Christian Prudhomme has been criticized for saying all women’s races organized by the Amaury Sport Organization (ASO) are losing money. Prudhomme made the controversial comment in an interview with the Guardian while confirming that the organization launch a return of the Women’s Tour de France in 2022.

“In my opinion, we have to put aside the idea of ​​parity between men and women. Why? Because there was a reason why [the women’s Tour de France held between 1984-89] only lasted six years, and it was a lack of economic balance. What we want to do is create a race that will stay the course, be put in place and stand the test of time. It means the race can’t lose money, ”said Prudhomme, while warning that if the new Women’s Tour de France loses ASO money, it could face another cancellation.
