The new team, which will employ only full-time professional riders, will increase pressure on race organisers, including ASO, promoters of the Tour de France, to further develop their own programme of women's racing, including a women's Tour, something which the UCI president, David Lappartient, has promised will happen within his four-year tenure.
"I chose Trek because rather than see me as a risk in pregnancy, they saw me as an investment and as a valued athlete", said Deignan.
This commitment comes with the confirmation of a dedicated director sportif, assistant director sportif, and support staff as well as shared support from the Trek-Segafredo men's team staff.
The 29-year-old is expecting her first child with Philip Deignan, the Team Sky rider, in September and wants to return to training by December.
Describing the launch of the women's team as "historic", Trek's CEO, John Burke, said that the team was "really optimistic about women's cycling". "The goals of the team perfectly align with my personal and professional goals, and I'm excited to be part of it".
A second rainbow jersey on home roads in Yorkshire will be a major target for Deignan's return season with Trek as she looks to add to her first world championships from 2015.
