Trans Woman Cyclist Wins North Carolina Race by Five Minutes

Trans Woman Cyclist Wins North Carolina Race by Five Minutes

The UCI is already reviewing its rules.

Transgender cyclist Austin Killips won the 131-mile Belgian Waffle Ride in North Carolina by five minutes:

Austin Killips, 27, who recently became the first openly trans woman to win an official Union Cycliste Internationale stage event, won $5,000 after easily coming in first in the 131-mile Belgian Waffle Ride in Hendersonville on Saturday, Cycling News reported.

Killips, who identifies as female, quickly took the lead in the women’s division before being passed briefly by Paige Onweller.

Killips ultimately surged ahead and beat her by five minutes.

Coming in third was Flavia Oliveira.

Onweller gave a nice interview after the race:

“Most of the day it was riding the top three women who were together, me Flavia and Austin. But yeah, I just kind of couldn’t match, you know, Austin and some of the single track and the power … just not comparable,” she said in an interview after the event.

“So kinda got gapped maybe 50 miles from there was kind of alone a lot of the time. Had a couple guys ride with and yeah, it’s kind of settled in and kept motoring and yeah, I got second,” Onweller said.

In a recent blog post, Onweller expressed a desire for a separate category for trans athletes.

The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) allows biological men to participate in women’s sports. However, it came under fire last month when Killips won the Tour of the Gila in New Mexico.

Females erupted after his New Mexico win, forcing the UCI to order a review of the rules:

The UCI said after a management committee meeting it is “reopening consultation with the athletes and national federations.”

Cycling’s rules were changed last year to require transgender athletes to have serum testosterone levels of 2.5 nanomoles per liter or less for at least 24 months before competing in women’s events. The previous rule stipulated below five nanomoles for only 12 months.

“The UCI’s objective remains the same: to take into consideration, in the context of the evolution of our society, the desire of transgender athletes to practice cycling,” the Switzerland-based organization said. “The UCI also hears the voices of female athletes and their concerns about an equal playing field for competitors, and will take into account all elements, including the evolution of scientific knowledge.”

Allowing biological men to compete in women’s cycling caused former champion Hannah Arensman to quit the sport.

Oh wooo. You beat a bunch of girls. What a freekin LOSER. Scared to race the other guys? I wonder why

He is NOT a woman.

I am a competitive cyclist ( a slow cat 4). In no way am I going to diss any of the female racers, but there is definitely a difference in strength, power acceleration , FTP, vo2 max between male and female cyclists.

a good point is here in Dallas, there is a husband wife couple. The wife is ranked in the top 20 in world (probably top 10) while the husband is ranked probably in the top 800-1200 in the world. He is definitely faster than his wife. Both of those cyclists are extremely will liked and respected in the cycling community.

Well I’m not the world’s most physical guy
But when she squeezed me tight she nearly broke my spine
Oh my Lola

Just require that the men be over 50 years old. A 50yo man has the same aerobic capacity as a 25yo woman.

    his (not hers) vo2 max is probably in the range of 80-82, the normal female athlete at that fitness level and age is probably around 65-75 . so around a 10 point difference give or take.

    the normal difference between male and female is only a 5 point difference. Mine is 53 at age 65, which is considered excellent plus based on the general population, but quite deficit in comparison to those I race against.

If this is meant to seriously discuss the issue, no leftist Wokeisms should be used. Therefore the correct commentary must be: Man with gender dysphoria “wins” women’s cycling event.

    MajorWood in reply to Capitalist-Dad. | June 12, 2023 at 1:39 pm

    I agree. LI should not adopt any of their language in the titles to articles. Holding firm to correct factual language is of utmost importance. I know that the leftists in Portland hate it when I use the term “feral humans” because they know that it is more factually accurate than whatever new term they are using that week. I think it is chronically unhoused, or maybe canvas sheltered, I can’t keep up.

    Whenever I see the word “transwoman” I mentally substitute “fake woman” anyhow. Helps keep things straight (no pun intended).

      OK, I freely admit that I’m no genius, but I don’t think I’m stupid either…but sometimes the simplest solutions to problems escape me.

      Thank you for this. I’ve been struggling for a long time with the whole “transwoman, transman” thing. Is it a chick pretending she’s a guy or a guy pretending to be a chick? I can never keep it straight in my head.

      That’s the perfect trick. Just replace “trans” with “fake” and it’s clear.

      It seems so obvious in retrospect, why didn’t I ever think of that?

It’s a good thing that a lifetime of hormonal differences and their resulting developmental differences can be undone with a year or two of suppressing one hormone. Otherwise, these competitions would be really unfair.

Rupert Smedley Hepplewhite | June 12, 2023 at 12:35 pm

This guy is the very definition of “smug bastard”.

Mentally disturbed man wins cycling race against women. Fixed it!

Trans Woman Male Cyclist Wins North Carolina Race by Five Minutes”

Fixed it.

All that is left now is to pick up that elusive Pud Light endorsement.

It is interesting that the narrative there is on Conservative/anti-Alphabet blaming and not looking at the real issue, which is AB using a mentally disturbed influencer to target mentally disturbed/underaged followers to promote brand awareness of an easliy abused substance by a targeted population.

Why wouldn’t he win? Everyone over fifty five knows that boys move faster than girls thanks to ball bearings and a stick shift.

Does he lack the testicular fortitude to bring his automatic tranny to a Grand Prix?

nordic prince | June 12, 2023 at 1:48 pm

What a wuss. Only a total loser would compete against females and then brag about his “win” as if it were some noteworthy accomplishment.

Not really a woman. Pretty sad.

Men that are trans should be required to compete against men that are not trans, just like before. They both are MEN. Same for women. No new categories. They can choose to be trans, but to almost everyone they remain what they are.

Enough of this unfair freak show.Let trans athletes compete against only other trans athletes

inspectorudy | June 12, 2023 at 3:06 pm

I’m sorry but until the women start taking action on their own, I am losing sympathy for them. As soon as a transman shows up for an event, but not before, the women should all walk out just before the event starts. That would make the event absurd since there would most likely be only one person in the event. Women have to take the bit in their mouths and run with it and make the rules committees all over the world understand that there will be no more womens events with men in them.

E Howard Hunt | June 12, 2023 at 3:29 pm

I’m jealous. The hardest part in choosing a bike saddle is finding one that won’t make a guy go numb, where a true tranny’s got none.

    Joe-dallas in reply to E Howard Hunt. | June 12, 2023 at 5:41 pm

    E howard, – fwiw – as a competitive cyclists, I will do my best to explain the biology.

    finding the correct saddle involves solving for two primary issues, A) the spacing on the ” two sit bones” (part of the inner hip – lower back bottom of the buttocks). B) accomodating the uretha and other blood vessels and nerves that run between the penis and halfway to the anus. Most mens saddles have a lengthways slit to accomodate and relieve the pressure for the uretha, nerves and blood vessels. (except in rare occasions, the penis and balls are not an issue.

    It should also be noted that womens saddles are definitely different to accomodate the different biological differences.

    What is completely ignored by the josef mengelee advocates, is that you can reroute only a tiny fraction of the plumbing.

    In summary, that guy will still use a men’s saddle because all the body parts will remain male.

      E Howard Hunt in reply to Joe-dallas. | June 12, 2023 at 6:52 pm

      My ass hammock is a Selle Anatomica X, popular among us 220 pound Clydesdales with 64cm frames. Going up steep hills is murder if you’ve got a rower’s body.

Watch the video clip of this vicious tranny misogynist push a competitor woman cyclist, while she was riding. This idiot should not only have been disqualified from the race, she should have been charged with assault.

Just stop calling them “Men’s” and “Women’s” categories, and blood test everyone that wants to race. There’s a XX category and a XY category, and you compete according to that. You can call yourself whatever you want, but you compete according to your genes.

Worth $5,000 and whatever dignity he may have had to beat a field of women. So another guy came in first in a women’s race. How nice for the dudes.

What an ass. Don’t trans athletes have any shame?

No difference in the sex eh?
Happens every time

Pride and prejudice. Trans/homo or trans/social?

“Cycling’s rules were changed last year to require transgender athletes to have serum testosterone levels of 2.5 nanomoles per liter or less for at least 24 months before competing in women’s events. The previous rule stipulated below five nanomoles for only 12 months.”

Deck chairs at Clown World. The only nanomoles that matter are the ones he had all through puberty.

Capitalist-Dad | June 13, 2023 at 10:03 am

Any discussion of this particular insanity turns instantly ridiculous. Still wondering how LGBTQ…can be a group. L and G I can understand, but B is simply an admission that sex IS binary, T doesn’t belong at all—how can guys who like d**k be allied with those who want to cut it off? And Q isn’t an identity, it’s just a mess.
