Just a 19-year old girl in her healthy wonderland.
Hi, I'm Amber. I'm currently 19 years old and I'm a economics student from Belgium. I've struggled with being overweight during my teenage years, but two years ago I decided to make a change and started living a healthy/sporty lifestyle.
"I think before we talk about having a three-week Tour De France, which has been a massive talking point this year, we need to talk about the professionalism of it. You can’t expect a woman who’s holding down a part-time job to train for the biggest race in the world. She has to have a minimum wage and I think it’s something that is pretty crazy that we don’t have that."
She has also called on professional teams to consider funding and running women’s teams alongside their existing men’s teams.
"It’s kind of the chicken and egg scenario. It’s media exposure, it’s sponsors. At the end of the day, cycling is a business, so we have to be able to offer something to a sponsor, and without exposure, that’s going to be difficult but that’s where the UCI perhaps has to be a little bit stronger.
If professional men’s teams are now going to have development teams, then why not also have a women’s team, she asked."
