British Cycling Limits Transgender Women Competing in Female Categories
@andrewfif: So first off, I will be upfront and say I have biases on this subject, I'm a trans guy. But I'm a person who has raced women's categories so I think I can speak on behalf of my experience at least. I've never thought that I've been in an unfair situation because I was in a race with a trans person. I never raced as a pro so I cannot say anything about that but I do have some friends that have raced pro (competitively) in women's CX races. I have never heard any of them say anything about feeling cheated because a trans woman was in their race (if anything they did not care or were even just happy to race with more fast people). With my experience racing amateur CX I had never felt I was "fighting a losing battle" because there were trans women in my races. To me, at the end of the day we're just trying to be the best versions of ourselves so why does it really matter? I understand that's not everyone's view with races though, so I get how if you considered being a trans women doping how that could get frustrating. I am no doctor and have no personal experience with HRT so I cannot comment on how much strength is lost on hormones, but from what I've seen you do lose a lot of strength on estrogen and T blockers. So to me, I've never seen it that way. (Sorry if this whole response is formatted weird, I was just trying to make it a little easier to read).

British Cycling Limits Transgender Women Competing in Female Categories
I must say in Hannah's case I feel it's a bit ridiculous to quit racing just because you lost to someone (and that person did not even win at that race). I've actually met the person she says that she quit because of. I must say that Austin Killips is one of the most hardworking people you'll ever see. She's worked really hard to be at the level she is at. But here it seems that Hannah just chalks it up to Austin being trans and quits instead of trying to better herself. Hannah wouldn't even have won the race if Austin wasn't there, so I just really don't understand her reaction. If anything it just seems like bad sportsmanship.
