The 261.5km race takes riders south from Liege to Bastogne before turning around and heading back a different way to finish in Ans, just outside of Liege. The course features 11 tough climbs, the majority of which come in the back half of the course.

Four-time Liege-Bastogne-Liege winner Moreno Argentin said of the race in 2001:

Liège is a race of trial by elimination, where it’s very unlikely that a breakaway can go clear and decide the race before the final 100 km. You need to be strong and at the same time clever and calculating — in this sense it’s a complete test of a cyclist’s ability.

The race will be broadcast live on SBS One in the eastern states from 11:15pm on Sunday. Live streaming will be available online across the country at Cycling Central. Click here to read our longer preview of Liege-Bastogne-Liege and click here to visit the race’s official website.
