Four U.S. Riders ready for battle at Leige-Bastogne-Leige

American's Daniel, Vermeulen, Howes and Warbasse line up for Pro Teams at the one of the Spring Classics toughest races this Sunday

The 103rd edition Liège-Bastogne-Liège is the final race of the three Ardennes Classics. 

American riders Larry Warbasse (Aqua Blue Sport), Alexey Vermeulen (LottoNL-Jumbo), Alex Howes (Cannondale-Drapac), and Gregory Daniel (Trek-Segafredo) will be at the start line this Sunday.

Freezing temperatures are expected for the start of the race, but no snow is forecast, which struck last year's event.

Alex Howes from Cannondale-Drapac finished in 21st place last year, just 12 seconds behind winner Wout Poels from Team Sky. He's had a great start to his season, winning the mountains classification at the Vuelta al Pais Vasco and finishing in 25th place finish at Amstel Gold Race recently.

Liège-Bastogne-Liège is one of the hardest one day races, at 258 kilometers, contains 10 climbs, totalling around 4,000 metres of climbing - harder than some Tour de France mountain stages.
