Liège strikes with new climb

The finale of the 94th Liège-Bastogne-Liège – 261 kilometres, running April 27 – will be modified with the insertion of the 1.5-kilometre Côte de La Roche aux Faucons.

Organisers have inserted the climb (9.9% average gradient, 18% maximum), 20 kilometres from the arrival in Ans, Belgium, in place of the Côte du Sart-Tilman. The race will continue to conclude with the Côte de Saint-Nicolas, 4.5 kilometres from the finish.
