The International Cycling Union will deliver a proposal to the International Olympic Committee that looks to create a gender balanced track race program for the 2012 London Olympics.  The new program will give equal gold medal opportunities to both men and women.  The Beijing Olympics held seven track events for men and only three for women.  The ICU is risking angering cyclists, as the proposal may cut traditional races in order to create a gender balanced schedule.
