The Women’s WorldTour’s Liège-Bastogne-Liège will close out the Ardennes Classics on April 25 in Belgium. There will be a stacked field full of high-profile contenders including double World Champion Anna van der Breggen (SD Worx) and overall series leader Marianne Vos (Jumbo-Visma), while noticeably absent from the roster is defending champion Lizzie Deignan (Trek-Segafredo). 

The one-day Classics could, however, open up opportunities for a surprise champion on the streets of Liège.
