The Liège-Bastogne-Liège (La Doyenne) UCI World Tour Classic first edition took place in 1892. Liège-Bastogne-Liège is one of the five cycle monuments. LBL is the toughest race with very difficult climbs, winding roads and rolling hills. Due to the late winter the race sometimes was affected by snow and therefore Liège-Bastogne-Liège is a first class challenger.
