For the Better: Evelyn Sifton

We talk to a trans elite cyclist about inspiring the next generation.

In the first episode of For the Better, we meet Evelyn Sifton, a 23-year-old professional cyclist who is equally passionate about combating the prejudices towards the transgender community. We sat down with her two weeks before her operation to talk about how it is to transition in such a competitive world and about the ways she will stay involved in the scene after the procedure, when she won’t be able to ride for months—how she'll be using this moment to focus on helping her team from the sidelines and continue to be an inspiration for the next generation.
