Lizzie Deignan (Trek-Segafredo) will focus on the Giro Rosa and Tour of Flanders as part of her late-season racing programme. The former world champion says she is dreaming of winning a race for her team again once the COVID-19 coronavirus public health restrictions are lifted and racing resumes. 

"I'm particularly excited to race the 'Spring Classics'! I don’t think it matters what time of the year they’re raced. They are iconic races and daydreaming about a victory there for the team is what motivates me now during lockdown training," Deignan said in a team press statement.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
