Annemiek van Vleuten (Mitchelton-Scott) will return to defend her title at Liège-Bastogne-Liège Femmes on October 4. Having lost the rainbow jersey to compatriot Anna van der Breggen at the World Championships last weekend, she will instead toe the start line wearing the European Champion's jersey.

The race is normally the finale to the Ardennes Classics in April, however, this year it will be held on October 4 as part of the post-COVID-19 late-season Women's WorldTour calendar.
