Lizzie Deignan (Trek-Segafredo) has won the 2020 Liège-Bastogne-Liège Femmes in a solo victory ahead of chaser Grace Brown (Mitchelton-Scott), while her Trek-Segafredo teammate Ellen Van Dijk won the chase-group sprint for third.

Liège-Bastogne-Liège normally closes out the Ardennes Classics and the spring one-day races on April 26, however, this year it was held on October 4 as part of the post-COVID-19 late-season Women's WorldTour calendar. It also marked the second of the Ardennes after Flèche Wallonne, while Amstel Gold Race Ladies Edition was to be the final of the three events, but was cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns.

The UCI announced the revised-late season calendar in May and the Women's WorldTour has retained 16 of the original 22 events. It will include five stage races and 11 one-day races.

The 136.5km race started in Bastogne and included climbs over Côte de Wanne, Côte de la Haute-Levée and Côte de la Vecquée, before taking on the climbs in the later stages of the race; Côte de La Redoute, where Van Vleuten attacked to win last year's edition, Côte de la Roche-aux-Faucons before finishing in Liège.
