Former world champion Deignan determined to ride at 2021 Olympic Games
Former world champion Lizzie Deignan remains confident she will be riding come the Tokyo Olympic Games despite the event being postponed until 2021.
The 31 year-old, who earlier on this season specified the Olympics as her main goal for the year, took silver in the road race at London 2012, before missing out on a medal at Rio four years ago with a fifth place finish.
And while the coronavirus has pushed the Tokyo Games back to next summer, Deignan is still adamant that is her long-term goal.
She said: "I have the motivation and optimism to carry me through to an Olympics in 2021. What a special Games that will be."
