After an aggressive week and the news that his team would be safe in the WorldTour for the remainder of the year, Vincenzo Nibali’s Ardennes campaign had a disappointing end at Liège-Bastogne-Liège. Nibali just about avoided the crash that took out two former champions in Dan Martin (Cannondale-Garmin) and Simon Garrans (Orica-GreenEdge) and was in the front group as the race neared its conclusion. However, when push came to shove, the Italian had nothing left in the tank.
