Lizzie (Armistead) Deignan

Lizzie (Armistead) Deignan

‘Elizabeth the first’ as she was aptly nicknamed by the media at the London Olympics in 2012. Lizzie put in a gutsy performance, through the pouring rain, to come home on the Mall, just behind Marianne Vos in the Women’s road race, to win the first British medal of the home Games. This medal positioned Lizzie as one of the best female road cyclists in the World, and subsequent World Championship, World Cup, and Commonwealth titles have cemented her as such.

In 2013, Lizzie joined the Dutch Boels-Dolmans Team alongside Director Sportif Danny Stam – and she hasn’t looked back since. The 2014 season got off to an incredible start, as she won the first UCI World Cup Race, and finished on the podium for the next three, ensuring she maintained her lead in the Series and was crowned the Champion of the Women’s 2014 World Cup series at Open de Suede Vargarda, shortly after claiming Gold at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
