Megyn Kelly celebrates women fighting back as trans cyclist wonders why no one is at winner’s podium

Biological male and competitive gravel cyclist Lesley Mumford, 46, wants to know why no one was standing next to “her” at the winner’s podium after taking the top prize in the women’s age category of the 2023 Desert Gravel Co2Ut (Colorado to Utah) race.

Mumford, who transitioned in 2014, according to the Daily Mail, took a celebratory picture standing alone at the podium and posted it to Instagram.

“This was my first gravel race of 2023. I am beyond pleased with my effort. I placed 6th in the overall standings on the 100-mile course in a stacked field. This was the first race in the Colorado Summer of Gravel Series, so a lot of hitters were here,” Mumford wrote. “My effort also landed me a 1st in age group. Thank you to all of the course marshalls, volunteers, and everyone who makes these events happen.”

After thanking the team, Mumford added, “Lastly, I have no idea why so many people bailed before the podiums, but they did. I swear I wasn’t the only one in my age group.”

Mumford “finished a full 17 seconds ahead of the second place Lindsey Kriete and 33 seconds ahead of third place Michelle Van Sickle in the grueling challenge,” the Daily Mail reports. “Neither have spoken out about their absence from the podium.”

On her podcast, Megyn Kelly did speak out, blasting the “biological male” for even being in the race.

Discussing trans athletes in competitive women’s sports, Kelly said, “Let me show the picture of the most recent one, where the person who won is a biological male and this person gets up on the podium after it’s all done and says, ‘gee, I don’t know where everybody is. I beat all the women. Why didn’t they show up?'”

“This is someone pretending to be a woman,” Kelly stated.

She detailed the rigors of the 100-mile gravel course.

“This is a biological man who says he’s a trans woman who’s racing,” Kelly said. “His name was, until two minutes ago, Wesley Mumford, and he was a sheriff’s deputy. Now he says he’s Lesley Mumford and has won in the women’s 40 to 49 age group out of 14 participants and was six out of 33 for women overall.”

“Any idea why the biological women — the women — bailed when it came time to celebrate Lesley/Wesley’s win?” she asked guests, Carrie Prejean Boller and Britt Mayer, co-founders of The Battle Cry, a group formed “in response to the gender ideology cult” that is systematically “erasing women.”

“I think that what we’re seeing is that we’ve been polite for so long and we thought that being polite was going to somehow make this all go away but it’s getting worse,” Mayer said. “But as it gets worse, I think that women are becoming stronger in their convictions and realizing what’s at stake and saying that if we don’t protest this now, this madness is going to be this tidal wave that destroys women’s sports.”

Mumford, Kelly noted, could have competed in the “trans category” but elected not to.

“They don’t want to,” Boller replied. “They are narcissists, these are people that are very sick. They’re sick individuals and they get off from beating women.”
