Moolman Pasio acknowledged the setbacks that many sponsors, teams and events have faced this year due to COVID-19 and increased financial requirements to be part of the Women’s WorldTour. “The big thing that, this year, set them back and has resulted in this relegation is the fact that there was no live TV coverage,” Moolman said. “That has a lot to do with the fact that the UCI created a minimum requirement to be a WorldTour race, and one of those requirements was 45 minutes of live TV, and the Giro Rosa didn’t execute on that.
“Of course, it’s an exceptional year with COVID-19 and difficult times for everyone, and I’m sure just as difficult for race organisation, and it’s been a difficult year, and at least we had the opportunity to race.”
