Deignan ‘legless’ but hails GB World Championships performance as best in years

Deignan ‘legless’ but hails GB World Championships performance as best in years


Great Britain may not have been able to manage a medal, or even a top-10, in Saturday’s elite women’s road race in Flanders at the Road World Championships however 2015 winner Lizzie Deignan hailed the strong team showing as one of the nation’s best performances in years, with particular praise for 22-year-old Anna Henderson

It was Henderson who played the more prominent role, looking for moves during the open and attacking phase of the race around the Flandrien loop and back towards the Leuven circuit. Deignan, meanwhile, played more of a waiting game, saving one big bullet for the final throws of the race.
