After taking over a year away from racing to give birth to her daughter Orla, former World Champion Lizzie Deignan returned in 2019 with Trek-Segafredo. Although Lizzie struggled to find her form or old, she eventually won the Ovo Energy Women's Tour, an emotional hometown victory. Lizzie has a long list of palmarés in track and road cycling, including the 2015 World Championship Road Race and multiple British National Championships. She's a savvy rider with a strong kick and is at her best in one-day races, which has netted her wins in esteemed classics like the Tour of Flanders and Strade Bianche as well as the GP de Plouay-Bretagne twice. In 2020, Lizzie has set her focus on the Tokyo Olympic Games, where she would love to add another medal to the silver she won in 2012.
