Women take a knee at US Pro Road Nationals after Roe v. Wade overturned

June 24, 2022

During the national anthem before the elite women’s criterium road race at the USA Cycling Pro Road National Championships on Friday, over half of the field took to one knee.

The gesture was a direct response to the news from earlier Friday that the U.S. Supreme Court had overturned the landmark 1973 ruling Roe v. Wade which guaranteed a woman’s constitutional right to access abortion services. VeloNews
