The women's Liège-Bastogne-Liège was decided on the final climb, the Côte de la Roche-aux-Faucons, starting 15 kilometres from the finish. It was Anna van der Breggen (Team SD Worx), world champion and winner of the race in 2017 and 2018, who split the race and delivered teammate Demi Vollering to victory.

Van der Breggen took to the front of the group of about 30 riders and set a hard pace, stifling any attempts to attack and dropping one rider after another.
