The Cycling Podcast Big Race Explainer – No.4 Liège-Bastogne-Liège

Apr 20, 2016, 04:00 PM

April 20 | Liège-Bastogne-Liège is the final important one-day Classic of the spring before the focus switches to stage races and the Grand Tours.

La Doyenne is the oldest of professional cycling's five one-day Monuments.

It is a very different race to the cobbled Classics that come earlier in the spring. The course makes its way into the hilly Ardennes and the amount of climbing in the second half of the race makes it a challenge suited to the same sort of riders who excel in the mountains.

In this episode of The Cycling Podcast's Big Race Explainer we hear from 2014 winner Simon Gerrans and Larry Warbasse of IAM Cycling.
