Lizzie Deignan looking to push on in 2020

The 30-year-old returned to competition in April after becoming a mum last year.

Lizzie Deignan will set her sights higher in 2020 as she says the time to think of herself as a mum on a bike is over.

Deignan gave birth to baby daughter Orla last September before returning to competition in April.

Though she could not deliver a dream victory at the UCI Road World Championships on home turf in Yorkshire in September, her season was a success given her victory at the Women's Tour in June so soon after coming back.

She went on to finish 14th in the Tour of California before winning the Women's Tour in June, but then focused on training camps rather than racing in the build-up to the World Championships.

That approach will be different in 2020, with the only Grand Tour on the women's calendar – the Giro Rosa in Italy – on the agenda in June.

"I'll race more this year," she said. "I need the race days. I'll do the Giro, and that'll be the big difference with a 10-day stage race. I'll do the Women's Tour and then the Giro so that will be a big block of racing."
