Liege - Bastogne - Liege
Liège-Bastogne-Liège is well and truly the oldest of cycling's classics. First run in 1892, Liege Bastogne Liege, or LBL as it is known by some cycling fans, travels through the hilliest parts of Belgium, along routes typical of the Ardennes.
Be a part of LBL's rich cycling history and join us for the 100th Liege Bastogne Liege in 2014. You ride the full course on the Saturday and you watch the Pro race on the Sunday. Last year we managed to see the riders go past 7 times!!!
Along the way, famed ports of call bring to mind great moments in cycling history, as well as one of World War II's fiercest battles – Stavelot and Houffalize were two of the focal points of the Battle of the Ardennes.
Previous LBL winners include Bernard Hinault, who pulled off a memorable solo breakaway in 1980, won amidst blizzard conditions; Eddy Merckx, having managed five victories in a seven year span from 1969 to 1975, including three in a row; Moreno Argentin, Italy's maestro, with four wins between 1985 and 1991. Others include cycling legends such as Ferdi Kubler, Josef Fuchs, Sean Kelly, Rolf Sorensen, Adri Van der Poel, Jacques Anquetil, Laurent Jalabert, Alexandre Vinokourov and Alejandro Valverde.
