Bridie O'Donnell: Cycling's power imbalance is extremely apparent

Another interesting article about Bridie O'Donnell: Cycling's power imbalance is extremely apparent
O’Donnell recalls witnessing other riders subjected to abuse at the hands of their coaches and superiors, something she also endured during her time as a triathlete. In a chapter entitled #UsToo, O’Donnell describes a former triathlon coach as “violent, aggressive, manic, paranoid and suspicious” – and recalls being humiliated in front of other squad members about her weight, times and inferiority to other women in her squad.

It'll be in her new book no doubt. I've not read it yet but will soon after she sent me a signed copy:
