Great Britain's Tao Geoghegan Hart placed third in the Under-23 Liège-Bastogne-Liège today in Alleur, Belgium. Frenchman Anthony Turgis won and Belgian Dylan Teuns took second place.
The race covered 181.5 kilometres on many of the same roads that riders like Sky's Chris Froome will race next Sunday in the professional version. Instead of starting and finishing in Liège, the Under 23's race began in Bastogne and traveled north to Alleur. The professionals end their race five kilometres to the south in Ans.
Geoghegan Hart became only the second Brit in the races's 29-year history to step onto the podium. He matched the result by Charly Wegelius in 1999.
The 19-year-old of team Bissell placed 15th in the Tour of Flanders last weekend. The results add to his third place in Paris-Roubaix and overall wins in the Tour of Istria and GC Giro della Lunigiana last year.
