Lizzie Deignan (Trek-Segafredo) says she's finding it 'boring' that she can't yet attack as she has done in the past.

The former world champion only made her return to racing two weeks ago at the Amstel Gold Race, having taken an extended break to give birth to her daughter, Orla. Deignan races through the Ardennes Classics last week, with her best result coming at Liège-Bastogne-Liège, where she finished in seventh place.
