Eurosport considered the poor response of cycling to Black Lives Matter, referring to Diversity In Cycling:

British Cycling are at least aware of the problem. In July 2019 they shared an independent report into diversity that had been co-produced by experienced road racer Andy Edwards and Black Cyclists Network founder Mani Arthur.

“The report was a grass roots collaboration between Andy and myself,” Arthur told Eurosport. “Once we’d completed it then British Cycling offered to distribute and share it. We thought ‘you know what, that’s what we were trying to achieve anyway’, so we were happy for them to publish it on the website and share it to a larger audience.”
