Britain's Hannah Barnes believes other cycling events can learn from how the Women's Tour champions equality with its men's version, the Tour of Britain.

This year the Women's Tour has more than doubled its prize fund to match the sums awarded in the men's race.

"It's a huge deal and I'm really proud. I feel the sport is moving in the right direction and I feel Britain is to thank for that," Barnes added.

"I believe everyone is going to have to compete with the British races."
