first_imgLizzie will say ‘I do’ to Philip next SeptemberDONEGAL cycling kingpin Philip Deignan is set to marry ladies Road Race World champion Lizzie Armitstead.Lizzie, who will 27 tomorrow and is from Yorkshire, says she and Philip will tie the knot in Leeds next September – after she competes in the Olympic Games in Rio where she will be hoping to land a gold medal. She won Silver at the London Olympics.“We’ve both got big families but it will be fairly low key,” said Lizzie who Lizzie is one of 12 nominees for the 2015 BBC Sports Personality of the Year (SPOTY) award, which will be presented in Belfast on Sunday night. “I’m definitely not focussed on that being the biggest, best day of my life. My mum is brilliant, she’s organising most of it. I’ve picked my dress but to be honest I’ll probably be a bit of a guest at my own wedding. I’ve never dreamt of my wedding day, I’m not one of those people.”Two years ago, Armitstead and Letterkenny man Deignan moved to Monaco where they share a small flat. They are both on Team Sky.On the roads around the principality on the French Riviera, where she trains, Armitstead often passes the rich and famous on their bikes – sportspeople like Novak Djokovic, Rory McIlroy and Jenson Button. But she is not in it for the wealth and glamour.‘”I’m literally riding my bike and then going to sleep and eating a salad in between. I’m not living this movie star lifestyle at all,” she said. “The hardest part of my job I would say is staying lean – the going out and hurting myself is ok but coming home and being hungry, having no treat at the end of the day… It’s just complete discipline all the time.”BICYCLE MADE FOR TWO!
