Philippa York has revealed her transition from champion cyclist Robert Millar

British former Tour de France cyclist Robert Millar has completed a transition to become a woman.

The 58-year-old has decided to go public with the gender change because she says there is “a much better acceptance and understanding”.

Millar was best known for winning the King of the Mountains prize in the Tour de France in 1984.

Philippa York, who becomes the first high-profile cyclist to go public, made the statement on cyclingnews.com.
