Hailing from Otley in West Yorkshire, England, Deignan has long enjoyed success since her youth and now races for one of the leading professional cycling teams, alongside her successful representation of her country.

After a successful early career on the track circuit, in 2009 Deignan made the move to the road cycling and hasn’t looked back since.

Since claiming the 2009 Giro d'Italia Femminile Young Rider title, she has gone from strength to strength winning a string of accolades including:

  • 2017, 2015, 2013 & 2011 National Road Race Champion
  • 2017 - Tour de Yorkshire
  • 2014 - Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist Road Race
  • 2014 - UCI Women's Road World Cup Champion
  • 2012 - Olympic Silver Medallist
  • 2010 - Commonwealth Games Silver Medallist Road Race

Now racing for the esteemed Boels-Dolmans Cycling Team, Deignan is one of the most highly ranked individuals in professional women’s cycling.

Deignan’s demonstrable success when on the saddle and professional nature on and off the bike are all attributes that have led her to becoming the Cycleplan ambassador, the leading UK cycle insurer.

"Specialist cycle insurance understands the specific needs of cyclists and is brilliantly placed to offer protection should the worst happen to you or your bike. Some home insurance may not cover you for incidents, whereas specialist cycle insurance also covers you for any incidents away from the home which I think is when anything untoward is most likely to happen to you or your bike. Whether you’re a keen weekend hobbyist or use your bike to commute, there are too many potential hazards out there not to consider specialist cycling insurance."
