How "same" is calculated is up for debate though, I guess. Same percentage? What if Men P12 is 50 riders, pays 10 deep, $1000 purse, but Women only have 12, do they have identical $1000 purse, 10-deep payout or pay out the top 3? The winner gets WAY more than the men in that situation...
Same % of entry fees on local races because it is a % of revenue works - for local races. For "entertainment" races (people pay to watch, sponsors pay) are very complex as there are sponsors and viewers and they want to know what is in it for them so % of revenue is more difficult.

Entertainment / sports are market driven, that will not change. Some sports pay more, as do some jobs.

Comply with the (proposed) law: All those that race in the same race get paid exactly the same, for the same result, regardless of gender or age.

That eliminates women's fields.
