Sky misses out in Liege-Bastogne-Liege

Chris Froome, Liege-Bastogne-Liege 2013

Chris Froome and Sergio Henao in Liège-Bastogne-Liège today failed to repeat team Sky's success in Flèche Wallonne. Despite Henao placing second four days ago, the best he could manage today was 16th.

"If you look at the team we have here, a GC team, guys that aren't accustomed to the classics," Froome told Cycling Weekly. "Sergio was obviously our leader after coming second in Flèche. We tried to help him as much as possible, but he didn't have the legs to go with Rodríguez."
