Photo gallery: 2016 Liege-Bastogne-Liege


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.

Conditions such as those seen at Sunday’s Liege-Bastogne-Liege make the job of a cycling photographer even more difficult than it already is. We caught up with Kristof Ramon to find out how he prepared for the horrible conditions at Sunday’s race, how the 2016 Liege-Bastogne-Liege compared to the similarly snow-affected 2013 edition of Milan-San Remo, and why tough conditions make a race like Liege so much more memorable.

Have a listen to the interview here:

  • Nice to see Boswell present, at least in spirit.

      I noticed that too – pretty sure it was Froome wearing Boswell’s jacket wasn’t it? Rare sign of Sky/Rapha economising.

        Froome tweeted about it. He wasn’t sure how he ended up in boswell’s jacket.

        • Must have stolen it from him while they were training in South African together.

    Thanks once again for such wonderful photos of the spring classics Kristof & Cor!

    To all the rider safety advocates out there: That stuff falling from the sky is called snow, when it accumulates on the road it is called slush. It only does so when the weather is very cold, around 0 C. When it falls in Belgium it is considered safe riding conditions. When it threatens to do so, but actually doesn’t during TA in Italy, it is considered unsafe. Go figure.
