Organizers of October’s Cincinnati UCI3 Cyclocross Festival say the race will offer the largest women’s prize list of any cyclocross race in the world: $10,000.

The total prize list for the Oct. 8-11 event is $30,000.

All three races of the UCI3 Festival will pay prize money according to the formula devised by current U.S. Mountain Bike XC Women’s Champion Georgia Gould, where the top three women’s finishers are paid according to the UCI men’s minimum standard.

The weekend includes three men’s races, as well: two UCI category 2 events and one cat.1 race.

The UCI3 Festival, is in its third year and takes place at three venues near Cincinnati. More information at
