Liege-Bastogne-Liege brings down the curtain over the spring classics. Liv Racing Xstra aims to animate the race, just like it did in the Fleche Wallone.
The 142,1 km long race includes seven ascents. The first one is the Côte de Mont-le Soie after 55 km, followed by the Côte de Wanne, Côte de la Haute-Levée, Côte du Rosier, Côte de Desnié and Côte de la Redoute. The Côte de la Roche-Aux-Faucons is the final ascent of the day at 13 km from the finish.
Liv Racing Xstra brings 5 riders to the start line in Bastogne: Alison Jackson, Marta Jaskulska, Jeanne Korevaar, Katia Ragusa and Quinty Ton. “We start with one rider less to some injuries and illness. We want to race again like we did in Fleche Wallone and want to try to get in a good breakaway again. I hope we can be involved in the action and maybe make it into the final part of the race. We want to finish the spring classic campaign in a good way”, sports director Giorgia Bronzini told.
