Photo gallery: A rain-soaked 2019 Liege-Bastogne-Liege

by Matt de Neef


This past Sunday, Jakob Fuglsang (Astana) took the biggest one-day victory of his career. But this year’s Liege-Bastogne-Liege will be remembered for more than the Dane’s breakout success.

It was a race lashed by heavy rain — particularly in the early stages — making for miserable conditions for all who took part. Thankfully for those of us watching from the dry warmth of our living rooms, wet races also make for great photos. And when it comes to great photos, Kristof Ramon and the Grubers — Ashley and Jered — are the best in the business. Check out their stellar shots from a rain-soaked 2019 Liege-Bastone-Liege below.
