The Rouleur Longreads Podcast: Cycling's #MeToo Moment

“I’ve seen everything. I’m tired. I am tired of these guys thinking she just needs to shut up because this is the way it is, because I’m a woman in our sport.” 

What began as isolated complaints against one man has escalated into numerous accounts of inappropriate behaviour at the least - and sexual assault at worst - in professional cycling teams. Women call for change. Now.

Orla Chennaoui uncovers disturbing evidence of sexual abuse and harassment in the women’s peloton – this is pro cycling’s #MeToo moment.
