Liège-Bastogne-Liège (World Tour), Belgium

Flemish: Luik-Bastenaken-Luik

Winners, Distance and Average Speed

Liège-Bastogne-Liège is the oldest race in cycling, the first edition having been run in 1892. Called "La Doyenne", it used to be the fifth race in the World Cup before the Pro Tour was instituted.

Liège-Bastogne-Liège is one of the five "monuments" of cycling, the most important and prestigious single-day races on the calendar. The others are Milan-San Remo, Tour of Flanders, Paris-Roubiax and the Tour of Lombardy.

Until recently, La Flèche Wallonne and Liège-Bastogne-Liège and were run during a single weekend, called Le Weekend Ardennais, since both are run in the Ardennes region of Belgium. La Flèche Wallone is now (2011) held mid-week between Amstel Gold and Liège-Bastogne-Liège

La Flèche Wallonne is a hilly race with most of the climbs coming after the riders turn around at Bastogne.
