Not at all, but there does seems to be a correlation. As others have noted, it certainly LOOKS like it's a human rights issue for many here. Just based on their arguments. I'm not white or "Caucasian," by the way. I'm happy the sport is diversifying somewhat on the highest level. It's a ridiculous assertion anyway, that white dominance has anything to do with a global preference for men's sports, exceptions notwithstanding.
I acknowledged that some fans aren't like the majority (3 posts above). Sure, some would like to watch it all, including U23, including women's cycling, etc., but there are reasons to believe that it will be tough to commercialize it. U23 as well. The sport is probably too small for that.
