British transgender cyclist banned

Outsports has reported that transgender cyclist Emily Bridges has been barred from competing in the British National Omnium Championship after the UCI—the sports' international governing body—said Bridges is still registered as a male cyclist.

Because Bridges' latest UCI registration is as a male cyclist, she is ineligible to compete in women's competitions. Bridges has said she started her medical transition a little over a year ago, so she meets the minimum transition requirement to compete.

Bridges has been competing in the men's category, winning the points race at the British Universities championships in Glasgow just last month.

British Cycling expressed its disappointment with UCI's ruling, and the organization said in a statement it supports further understanding of the effects of medical transition.
