As historical and attached to traditions as they are, the Ardennes classics still manage to bring novelty.
On Sunday, Anna van der Breggen will discover new grounds for the third women’s race of Liège-Bastogne-Liège. After her two triumphs in Ans, she will head to Liège, for a finish in the city centre after 138.5 km of battle. Van der Breggen and her rivals will face five climbs, beginning with the Côte de Wanne, Côte de Brume and Côte de la Vecquée. They will then battle it out over the Côte de La Redoute and Côte de la Roche-aux-Faucons.
