Cyclist Emily Bridges Makes the “Vogue 25” List
August 23, 2023
British cyclist Emily Bridges was honored today by British Vogue as one of the “Vogue 25,” an annual round up of “Britain’s 25 Powerhouse women.” The list showcases the women defining—and redefining—Britain in 2023, according to the magazine.
Earlier this year, Bridges, who left the Great Britain National Cycling team in 2020 to begin her transition, was in talks with the team about rejoining and targeting the 2024 Paris Olympics. However, that dream ground to a standstill when the British Cycling Federation, the national governing body for the sport, announced in May that it was banning transgender women from competing in women’s events.
