The much-delayed 2020 Classics season is belatedly under way, with Liège-Bastogne-Liège and Liège-Bastogne-Liège Femmes coming up on Sunday as the Ardennes Classics precede the cobbles for one season only.
2019 champion Jakob Fuglsang won't be present in Liège, though both races will feature star-studded lineups, including world champions Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-QuickStep) and Anna van der Breggen (Boels Dolmans).
Cyclingnews will bring you full live coverage, reports, results, news, interviews and analysis throughout the races. Read on to find out how to watch the 2020 Classics season via live stream, no matter your location, with ExpressVPN.
The men's race, which features 257km of Ardennes hills before the flat finish in Liège, is headlined by Alaphilippe but there are plenty of other big names set to start.
Previous winners Dan Martin (Israel Start-Up Nation), Wout Poels (Bahrain McLaren) and Bob Jungels (Deceuninck-QuickStep) will all be taking part, as will La Flèche Wallonne podium finishers Marc Hirschi (Sunweb), Benoît Cosnefroy (AG2R La Mondiale) and Michael Woods (EF Pro Cycling).
