Deignan ‘boneless’, but praises the performance in GB -VM as the best for years

Author: | Posted in Sports No comments

Britain may not have been able to claim a medal, or even a top-10, in Saturday’s elite women’s race in Flanders at the World Roads Championships, but 2015 winner Lizzie Deignan paid tribute to the strong team that proved to be a of the country’s best performances this year, with special 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 Flanders loop and back towards the Leuven circuit. Deignan, meanwhile, played more like a waiting game, saving a big ball for the final throw of the race.
