She is retiring from the sport with little to no money to get a real job. Her complaint is that these men who did cheat will make more money in their book writing about their cheating, by itself, much less than what they made in the sport itself, than she will in her entire career cumulatively.Her real beef is being a female cyclist. There simply is little money for professional female cyclists. There have been some that have made money, but only a handful and it is not a systematic professional athlete like money that is found for men's cycling.So I think her article has more to do with this gender gap, her frustration therein, and the fact that drugs dried up money into cycling and it was this surplus money that would find its way into women's professional cycling that was the first to disappear when the money for team's like Rabobank dried up. The first shoe to drop was sponsorship for women's cycling. She most certainly is not retiring on her cycling career earnings, and neither is any other woman on the planet at present.Tinker
