    The Challenge

    The pro race

    Liege-Bastogne-Liege is nicknamed ‘La Doyenne’ as it is the oldest race out of the classics which is still taking place today. Don’t be fooled and think that Belgium is flat. This race takes in plenty of steep, hilly sections and makes for some dramatic racing. First run in 1892, Liege Bastogne Liege, or LBL, takes you on hills typical of the Ardennes.

    Be a part of LBL’s rich cycling history and join us for the 2024 Liege Bastogne Liege on 22 and 23 April. On Saturday you can take part in the 2024 Liege Bastogne Liege Challenge. You have the opportunity to ride the amateur event on the Saturday with 274km, 154km and 75km distances available. The finish in Banneux will be closed officially at 20.00.

    On the Sunday we walk to the start of the 2024 Liege Bastogne Liege Pro race. If you want to make the Sunday extra special then why not book some VIP access tickets on the Sunday to watch the pros?
