Olympic medallist Lizzie Deignan (formerly Armitstead) is one of the most recognisable and respected faces within the world of cycling. 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:

  • 2015, 2013 & 2011 - National Road Race Champion
  • 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. As well as performing at the top of her professional game, she has a keen eye on going for gold in the 2016 Olympics where she will hope to go one medal better than her 2012 success.

Deignan’s demonstrable success when on the saddle, her respect amongst her peers 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.

explains why you need specialist cycling insurance.

"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."
