Personal Details:

Nationality Great Britain
Date of birth 18/12/1988


Elizabeth Deignan (née Armitstead), former road world champion and winner of the inaugural women's Paris-Roubaix, has been among the pro peloton's most successful riders since emerging as a road racing talent in the early 2010s.

Deignan, who hails from West Yorkshire, England, won a gold medal on the track in the team pursuit in 2009 and then gradually shifted her focus to road racing. She rode to a silver medal in the Olympic road race in 2012, a year in which she also won Gent-Wevelgem. The following season, the first of what would be six seasons with the Boels-Dolmans team, she took her first British national road title, having subsequently scored three more to make it a total of four in her career. Amid two decorated campaigns in 2014 and 2015, she was the women's World Cup's top-ranked rider and took the rainbow jersey in the elite women's road race in Richmond.

In 2018, Deignan took a hiatus from racing for the birth of her first child. She joined Trek-Segafredo and resumed competition in 2019, and stormed to victory in that year's OVO Energy Women's Tour. The following season, she took three WorldTour one-day wins at the GP de Plouay, La Course, and Liège-Bastogne-Liège, and then in 2021, she became the first ever winner of the Paris-Roubaix Femmes.

After spending 2022 away from racing amid the birth of her second child, Deignan is set to return to competing in the 2023 season.
