How do we applaud anti-racist action in cycling beyond a sense of tokenistic superficiality?

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

Tao Geoghegan Hart became a Grand Tour winner only months after the Black Lives Matters anti-racist protests swept across the world in the summer of 2020. Surely the greater power to him in demonstrating anti-racist solidarity with this would have come on the podium in Milan following his Giro Victory. His hero Lewis Hamilton had been taking the knee and raising his fist all year at F1 events. Why not follow suit? The Giro platform was available for the possibility of an even greater opportunity to speak his beliefs in anti-racism during that moment in Milan.
