Worlds Special: Lizzie Deignan in Yorkshire

Yorkshire's Lizzie Deignan knows what it takes to become World Champion. When her surname was still Armitstead, she claimed the coveted rainbow jersey in Richmond, Virginia in 2015. In the couple of years afterwards, Lizzie was in unbeatable form, hoovering up wins in some of the biggest races on the women's calendar. Then, having settled down with husband Phil (also a pro-cyclist), she took 2018 out of the sport to become a mum. This year though, the Worlds are back in Britain for the first time in a generation, and being raced on the Yorkshire lanes Lizzie knows so well. We rode together on a loop out of Harrogate, that took in the finish where she aims to clinch the rainbow stripes again.
