Liège-Bastogne-Liège preview: Think Belgium is flat? Think again

What's the date, time, route, odds and TV schedule for Liège-Bastogne-Liège?

The curtain will be brought down on the Spring Classics in style when the climbers show off in Liège-Bastogne-Liège.

Known as La Doyenne this is a gruelling 258 kilometer test of short, sharp ascents, with the likes of three-time winner Alejandro Valverde expected to shine.

WHEN IS THE RACE?

The 2017 Liège-Bastogne-Liège will take place on Sunday 23 April.

WHAT’S THE ROUTE?

Think Belgium is flat? Think again. There are climbs aplenty over the 258km course, with the peaks arriving at such a frequency in the final third of the race that the leading pack are almost certain to be whittled down to a small number.

WHY SHOULD I CARE?

It’s been suggested that Liege-Bastogne-Liege’s total climbing is on a par with the hardest days on the Tour de France and the 2017 edition will be no different. It's not one for the faint-hearted, but should provide barrel-loads of entertainment.

CAN I WATCH IT ON TV?

Eurosport, the home of cycling, will be covering the race live on Eurosport 2 and Eurosport Player.
