2019 Liege-Bastogne-Liege - Overview
Annemiek van Vleuten (Mitchelton-Scott) finished her Ardennes Classics campaign with a solo victory at Liège-Bastogne-Liège Femmes. The world time trial champion attacked on the Côte de la Redoute with 32km to go and increased her advantage all the time, finishing almost two minutes ahead of the chasing group.
Floortje Mackaij (Team Sunweb) attacked in the final kilometres to take second place, and Demi Vollering (Parkhotel Valkenburg) won the sprint to round out an all-Dutch podium.
The 2019 Liège-Bastogne-Liège Femmes was held on April 28. The 138.5km race was three kilometres longer and offers more climbing than the previous two editions.
It once again began in Bastogne but the first ascent came some 30 kilometres earlier than previously with the Côte de Wanne arriving after 55 kilometres, followed by the Côte de Brume nine kilometres later.
The Côte de la Vecquée signaled the beginning of the second section of climbing at the 90km mark, followed by the Côte de La Redoute. The women’s peloton didn't ride the Côte des Forges, and instead headed straight to the Côte de la Roche-aux-Faucons before the run into the centre of Liege.
