Women’s Pro-Cycling Team Visit Fox Valley Ahead of 2019 Tour de Yorkshire

15 April 2019

Cycling fans are in for a treat next month when the Trek-Segafredo women’s team visit Fox Valley in north Sheffield for a special VIP event.

The team, including Yorkshire’s own Lizzie Deignan, will visit the Fox Valley Trek store to meet fans and take part in a question and answer session just two days ahead of competing in this year’s Tour de Yorkshire.

The 2019 women’s race will start in Barnsley on Friday 3rd May and finish in Scarborough on Saturday 4th May. 

This season Yorkshire favourite Lizzie Deignan will return to competitive cycling, her last major competition was the 2017 UCI Road World Championships in Bergen before giving birth to her first child in September last year. 

Deignan will be among the Tour de Yorkshire team attending the special Trek event which will take place from 7:00pm until 8:30 on May 1st.

Places for the event are limited and cycling fans can register their interest through the Trek Sheffield facebook page https://www.facebook.com/events/454445071764537/ or by contacting the store on 0114 213 8020. 

Retail area manager for Trek Adam Wilkin said: “The women’s team will be setting off from Barnsley for the 2019 Tour de Yorkshire on Friday so this is a fantastic opportunity for cycling fans to meet the Trek-Segafredo team and hear their thoughts on the challenge ahead. 

“We’re looking forward to Lizzie’s return to competitive cycling this Spring and its particularly exciting to see her here in her home county of Yorkshire. We’re expecting a lot of interest in the event so we’d urge people to register their interest as soon as possible.”

The VIP evening will include nibbles and refreshments and there will be a special Trek goodie bag for the first 50 people on the evening.

Fox Valley hosted the dramatic finish of the Tour de Yorkshire in 2017 and is on the doorstep of some of the region’s most challenging and stunning road and mountain bike routes.

Event manager at Fox Valley Kayleigh Marron said: “We are proud to be home to the region’s only Trek store here at Fox Valley and really excited to be welcoming the Trek-Segafredo women’s team to Fox Valley, its going to be a great evening and a fantastic opportunity for cycling fans to meet some of their heroes.”
