    Women's prizes should be on par with the mens, just sayin.
    Wanted, SRAM GX 2x11 rear derailleur

    It ain't supposed to be easy.

    Exactly! How do they not see the offense to that?

    Is it our reading comprehension, or our society's propensity to blow up over every trivial issue, that we've lost all use of logic?


    Top 3 overall finishers -NOT MALE FINISHERS- in each class get a trophy and swag. Go look at the 2018 results. A woman won the 25 miler; came in 2nd on the 55 miler; and, came in 2nd on the 136 miler. In addition to the trophies and swag (or the cash prize for the female who podium'd in the 136), these top female finishers would ALSO receive flowers, too.


    Now, go make some excuses for why you're all so stupid.

    Really?
    You are clearly the TRIGGERED one, snowflake. I'm poking light fun at gendered prizes and you are the one flying off the rails about it. Put the Hannity down for a second so we can talk about this like adults.

    If you are correct that women did get the same prizes in the past PLUS flowers, then that is different. It's still silly gendered old-timey behavior, but different than what the facebook page is implying above and what I quoted above. It does not say they get trophies, swag AND flowers- just flowers. So where exactly is the failed reading comprehension? Please re-read what is on their facebook and get back to me.

    I see, the "all" in "overall" does not include women.

    I don't know if that falls under reading comprehension, or disingenuous. Hilarious.

    They responded to the issue and made it clear, women do in fact get the same prizes plus flowers. Still silly and gendered but nor egregious. So it was just bad writing and miscommunication. And I'll own that I spread misinformation so wanted to correct it.
