Voxwomen Close to Hitting Kickstarter Target for Women’s Cycling on TV

Less than one thousand pounds needed to fund pilot episode

Voxwomen have almost raised the cash needed to fund a pilot episode that will appear on a major international television channel.

The dedicated women’s cycling channel launched online just four months ago and have attracted almost 70,000 views to their YouTube channel.

They’re now looking for £8,000 to fund a full episode that will appear on television this year. If the show is a success, they hope to receive financial backing and offer a monthly broadcast.

At time of writing, £7,100 had been raised by 140 backers, with one supporter giving £1,000.

Founder, Anthony McCrossan, has said: “Women’s cycling has always struggled to receive television airtime and many fans have voiced that this is the reason why the female side of the sport has struggled to grow. This is now the prime opportunity for women’s cycling fans to change the industry and give female professional cyclists a platform for international coverage.”

Voxwomen need a further £900. You can read more about them, and even donate, here.
