X-rated cycle team furious after axing

A CYCLING club for porn stars has been tossed out by the sport's governing body.

The raunchy riders formed a group called the Porn Pedallers Cycling Club (PPCC). But British Cycling (BC) have revoked their membership - after they were informed what PPCC stood for, The Sun reports.

The controversial decision to revoke their BC affiliation has sparked outrage on social media. Several slated BC for its "selfish" approach, with others calling them "dinosaurs".

After the announcement, the PPCC wrote on Twitter: "Cycling is for everyone. Except people like us.

"Today British Cycling revoked our club affiliation because PPCC breaches UFC regulation 1.1.089.

"We are just a cycling club, riding for fun and raising money for the Terrence Higgins Trust. Is this justified?"

The PPCC, which was formed in 2016, consists of performers, producers and distributors from the adult entertainment industry.

Some of the group's riders have previously posed for photographs alongside Tour de France winner Geraint Thomas.

And 11-time world champion and six-time Olympic hero Chris Hoy has shown his support for the group.

But the governing body released a statement, which read: "We have been made aware the club name stands for Porn Pedallers Cycling Club.

"As such, we would be unable to accept your affiliation at this time."

One furious Twitter user replied: "Absolutely shocking and disgusting."

Another added: "Such a shame they can't even raise money for charity anymore because of their job! Unbelievable."

The riders regularly raise money for the Terence Higgins Trust - which provides services and help relating to HIV and sexual health.
