I’m past the point of caring about who can be in a bicycle race. I never cared. Thankfully, rules are written so that we can make up our own minds.
I’m (finally) now more disappointed at the wider human rights violations represented in some laws from Arkansas, Tennessee, Florida, and other states.
Sports orgs can deal with restrictions. But on the outside, for government to be involved with this, and that it appears to be escalating, is beyond the pale.
You are who you are. You are who you want to be. It’s no one’s business either way. Ride, race, spectate, or simply ignore. Whatever that choice is, I stand with you.
I don’t spend my money on, or time with, brands and people whose points of view don’t align with mine. If you oppress others, I am not here for you.
