Lizzie Deignan anticipates brutally challenging OVO Energy Women's Tour

Lizzie Deignan (Trek-Segafredo) is thankful to have had two months of racing under her belt before taking on the OVO Energy Women's Tour held from June 10-15. Deignan took time off to give birth to her first child last fall and had initially scheduled to rejoin the peloton in June at the British Women's WorldTour event, but instead took an earlier start at the Ardennes Classics. She expects the race to be more challenging than in previous editions.
