Liège-Bastogne-Liège is the oldest professional cycling race in the world and is one of the five cycling Monuments. It is also the showpiece event in the three races commonly known as the Ardenne Classics, with this year's edition of both the men’s and women’s races taking place on Sunday 21 April.

The men's race begins and ends in the Belgian city of Liège, with the riders racing out of the city in a big loop which sees them enter the city of Bastogne before returning back to Liège. In total, the route is 258.1 kilometres long with multiple punchy climbs- synonymous with the region- including the Côte de La Redoute and Cote de la Roche-aux-Faucons on the menu. In the women’s race, the riders start in Bastogne before taking on a 140 kilometre course which ends back in Liège.

In both 2023 and 2022, Remco Evenepoel of Soudal–Quick-Step took the victory. Previous recent winners have also included Slovenians Tadej Pogačar and Primož Roglič. In 2023 and 2021, Demi Vollering of SD Worx gained the top step of the podium in the women’s race, and Annemiek van Vleuten of Movistar took the win in 2022. British rider Lizzie Deignan has also previously gained victory in Liège in 2020.
