Megyn Kelly and Piers Morgan reacted to two biological men winning top spots in the Illinois State Women’s Cyclocross Championship, expressing outrage and questioning why more women aren’t standing up against men competing in women’s sporting events.
Martina Navratilova highlighted the issue of men making the rules and taking advantage of them, while former college female swimmer Riley Gaines criticized the lack of categories for women and offered to personally pay prize money to any woman who concedes and doesn’t compete.

Megyn Kelly ripped the incident as, “Infuriating.”
Piers Morgan wrote “so outrageous” on X.
“Why aren’t more women standing up against this assault on their rights?” he asked.
Tennis icon Martina Navratilova replied to Morgan, writing, “Women are standing up but it’s mostly men who make the rules.”
“And it is male bodies who take advantage of these ridiculous rules,” chided the pro athlete.
Former NCAA swimmer Riley Gaines wrote that, “[USACycling] has 2 categories for men and none for women.”
“Any woman who concedes and doesn’t compete, I will personally pay them the prize money they’re missing out on,” offered Gaines.
“Stop participating in the farce,” she demanded.
The USA Cycling Rules Book states, “No licensee may enter a race under an assumed name nor conspire to allow another rider to enter a race under an assumed name. This includes fraudulent use of another rider’s license, racing numbers, or timing.”
The rules reportedly state “a member may self-select their gender” at the non-elite level.
The rules permit biological men to race against biological women, if the man declares “that their gender identity is female.”
