Liège-Bastogne-Liège Femmes 2024 overview

Liège-Bastogne-Liège Femmes is the final race in the spring Classics calendar before the Women’s WorldTour rolls on to stage race season in Spain with the Vuelta Femenina.

The Classic takes place on Sunday, 21 April in the Wallonie region of Belgium. Even though the women’s race doesn’t quite follow the guide of the name Liège-Bastogne-Liège, it nevertheless begins in Bastogne and ends in Liège following an arduous 147km that mirrors the finale of the men's route. Along those parcours are many of the famous climbs including the Col du Rosier, Côte de la Redoute and the Côte de la Rouche-aux-Faucons.

With two of the hardest climbs of the day coming in the final hour of racing – the Côte de la Redoute and the Côte de la Rouche-aux-Faucons – the final of Liège-Bastogne-Liège provides several opportunities for attacks amongst a wide range of the top riders in the women’s peloton.

While the race has been dominated by Dutch general classification riders in its short history – with Demi Vollering, Anna van der Breggen and Annemiek van Vleuten winning all but one edition of the race between them – the route leaves the door open for riders like Kasia Niewiadoma, Marianne Vos, Elisa Longo Borghini, Évita Muzic and Shirin van Anrooij to step up and claim a big Classics result in Liège.
