Trans cyclists finish 1st and 2nd, hug each other on the podium next to 3rd place mum holding her baby

At London’s ThundCrit cycling event on Thursday, two biological men identifying as women took first and second place, then celebrated their “achievement” by kissing on the podium as the winner of the third place, a real woman, was holding her baby.

Emily Bridges and Lilly Chant, the two men who placed first and second, competed in ThunderCrit’s “Lightning” category. According to the website, this category is reserved for “cis women, non-binary people,” as well as “trans men and women whose physical performance most aligns with cis women.”

Bridges, 21, has tried and failed to make her way into women’s cycling competitions across the UK in recent months. As Breitbart’s Hannah Bleau reported in March, Bridges was denied access to the National Omnium Championships.

Bridges underwent hormone therapy. However, as the dominance of UPenn transgender swimmer Lia Thomas demonstrates, hormone therapy is totally inadequate to erase the natural physical advantages that men have over women.

Bridges also won races against other men on hormone therapy. In March, British Cycling still listed Bridges as a man, probably because he is.
