The oldest classic of them all dates back to 1892, with the first professional race coming two years later. Liege-Bastogne-Liege is regularly identified in cycling circles as being the toughest classic of the lot due to its climbs, which are consistently longer than the other races and many of them coming in the second half of the race.
The race has been won by some all time greats of the sport, with Bernard Hinault’s victory in 1980, when it snowed throughout, standing out. Liege-Bastogne-Liege is a thorough test of stamina and tactical prowess and victory here is a highlight of any cyclist’s career. This year’s race promises to be an intriguing one. Philippe Gilbert is the defending champion but two-time winner Alejandro Valverde is now back from suspension and cannot be ruled out after an impressive start to the season.
