Liège-Bastogne-Liège is the 4th Monument of the season. As it has been around for so long, it’s also called ‘La Doyenne des Classiques’ (the old lady of the classics). LBL marks the end of the Ardennes Classics period usually as Amstel Gold, Fleche Wallonne and LBL follow on from each other in a week. It also spells the end of the Spring Classics season as the next stop is the Giro d’Italia for many of the riders.

The professionals ride on Sunday and on Saturday it’s the turn of amateur riders to ride their LBL Challenge.

More About the Event

The Liege Bastogne Liege Sportive is the hardest sportive of the spring classics. For amateur riders, the ultimate challenge is to do the long distance and ride the same route the pros will ride on the following day. You will climb Côte de Saint-Roch (the wall of Houffalize), Côte de Wanne, and Côte de Stockeu. 

Shorter distances of 90 miles and 45 miles are available. All Sportive distances start and finish near Liege.

Please note that the start and the finish of the LBL Challenge is no longer in the center of Liege. The Sportive now starts and finishes in Sprimont.
