Jakob Fuglsang (Team Astana) claimed the first Monument of his career with a dominant performance at Liège-Bastogne-Liège. The Danish rider attacked on the final climb of the Côte de la Roche-aux-Faucons before dropping his breakaway companions on a short uncategorized climb with 13km to go.
Despite almost crashing on a wet descent before the line Fuglsang held on to take the biggest one day race of his career. Davide Formolo (Bora hangsgrohe), the last man Fuglsang dropped, took second while the final podium place went to Maximillian Schachman, who out-sprinted a group that contained Vincenzo Nibali.
Pre-race favourite Julian Alaphilippe had no answer when Michael Woods (EF Education First) attacked on the final climb with the Canadian taking Fuglsang and Formolo with him. The Dane was the only rider of the leading trio to take a significant turn on the front and although Formolo and Woods hung on over the Côte de la Roche-aux-Faucons they had no answer when Fuglsang dropped them on the final uphill of the race.
