Transgender women will be banned from competing in British Cycling’s competitive women’s events in changes that will see the men’s category become an open one.
The new policy change ends the hopes of transgender cyclist Emily Bridges of competing in women’s competitions.
It is 14 months since the 22-year-old was barred from competing in her first women’s event in Derby – facing five-time Olympic champion Dame Laura Kenny – after cycling’s world governing body ruled she was not eligible to race because she was still registered as a male cyclist.
