In the days leading up to the 2016 Liege-Bastogne-Liege, the weather forecast suggested riders were in for a challenging day out. Sure enough, as the race made its way around the Wallonia region of Belgium, heavy rain and snow lashed the course, making for a truly memorable edition of the season’s final Spring Classic.
Belgian cycling photographer Kristof Ramon was at the race and captured the images you can see below.
