This is what happens when you try to take away podium girls from sports events in 2018

In cycling, it seems, it is business as usual. The BBC may be using the men’s football World Cup to run trailers trumpeting its greatly increased coverage of women’s sport.

The source code. Check out the details.

The Tour de France is retaining its podium girls, after Formula 1 dropped grid girls, and furious darts fans demanded the return of walk-on girls by insisting: ‘Keep the ladies where they should be’


Fifa’s diversity boss may have ordered broadcasters to stop their cameras zooming in on ‘hot women’ during matches at the World Cup.

But in cycling, it seems, there will be no restrictions on ogling, because the so-called ‘podium girls’ are still appearing alongside ‘ and kissing ‘ the winner of every stage of the Tour de France.

Many things are taking place:

THE Tour de France was planning to ban the use of podium girls by July ‘ but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

Organisers of the tour held talks in March about ditching the longstanding but controversial tradition of having models present awards and shower winners with kisses after each stage of the race.

Women Who Ride: When Opportunity Comes Knocking

Out of all the MotoAmerica/WorldSuperbike races held on June 24th at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, I was most looking forward to the Liqui Moly Junior Cup. I was specifically looking for how Jamie Astudillo would perform and place. Afterall, the 17-year-old from Pennsylvania made history a few months ago at the Road Atlanta round by becoming the first female to take a MotoAmerica podium spot (she came in third place). Being one of the only top female riders in this national sport is really exciting, so naturally, I was rooting for her to do well in the race.

Once the Junior Cup racers took off, I made sure to listen to the announcer and look at the big score board, which shows the top 10 riders. Astudillo, number 49, immediately placed herself within the top 10, which is no surprise since she qualified fifth overall that weekend.
