April 28, 2019, Bastogne, Liege, Road - Women's WorldTour

2019 Liege-Bastogne-Liege - Overview

The 2019 Liège-Bastogne-Liège Femmes will be held on April 28. The 138.5km race is three kilometres longer and offers more climbing than the previous two editions.

It will once again begin in Bastogne but the first ascent will come some 30 kilometres earlier than previously with the Côte de Wanne arriving after 55 kilometres, followed by the Côte de Brume nine kilometres later.

The Côte de la Vecquée signals the beginning of the second section of climbing at the 90km mark, followed by the Côte de La Redoute. The women’s peloton will not ride the Côte des Forges, and will instead head straight to the Côte de la Roche-aux-Faucons before the run into the centre of Liege.

Anna van der Breggen won the opening two editions of the women's Liège-Bastogne-Liège, and the new world champion will be one of the favourites again this April. However, the new parcours should see a wider variety of riders taking the challenge to her.

Last year, Van der Breggen caught and passed breakaway rider Amanda Spratt (Mitchelton-Scott) in the closing kilometres to take a solo victory. Spratt finished second while her teammate Annemiek Van Vleuten finished third.
