Trek-Segafredo announced that Women's WorldTour leader Lizzie Deignan and new Italian champion Elisa Longo Borghini have signed on to remain with the team through the 2022 season.

Deignan, having come back in 2019 after the birth of her first child, originally planned to retire in 2020 but when her major target, the Olympic Games in Tokyo were postponed to 2021, she pushed the end of her career back as well. Now, with the success of the shortened 2020 season behind her - one that included victories in the GP de Plouay, La Course by le Tour de France and a stunning win in Liège-Bastogne-Liège, the former world champion again prolonged her career.

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.
