    Wout Poels wins a monument: Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2016 partially in the snow!

    Wout Poels wins a monument: Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2016 partially in the snow!The 102nd edition of Liège-Bastogne-Liège took place in quite heavy weather conditions, with snow, rain and a very low temperature. After a long lasting breakaway with 8 riders, the two final climbs finally forced the destiny in this race and the favourites didn't get a chance to battle for victory when the race was won by the Dutch rider Wout Poels (Team Sky)!

    The summary of Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2016

    200 riders started this morning in Liège for the 253 kilometers which made up the Liège-Bastogne-Liège race route this year, under almost freezing temperatures, around one degree, and with some snow flakes.

    Despites the difficult weather conditions, a group of 7 riders got away from the peloton after only a bit more than ten kilometers: Pavel Brutt (Tinkoff), Paolo Tiralongo (Astana), Nicolas Edet (Cofidis), Thomas de Gendt (Lotto-Soudal), Cesare Benedetti (Bora-Argon 18), Alessandro De Marchi (BMC Racing Team) and Jérémy Roy ...

    The Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2016 race route on Google Maps/Google Earth: the 102nd edition!

    The Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2016 race route on Google Maps/Google Earth: the 102nd edition!In 1892 the very first edition of Liège-Bastogne-Liège was organised and this race thus naturally has the nickname La Doyenne (the "oldest"). The first edition thus took place 124 years ago and this year is the 102nd edition of the Belgian classic which will take place between Liège, Bastogne and ... Ans (the finish location since 1992). Don't hesitate to read about the history of Liège-Bastogne-Liège which I published in the article about the race route of the 100th edition in 2014.

    The race route has been a bit modified in 2016, mainly because of the roadworks on the Côte de Stockeu.

    The Amstel Gold Race 2016 race route on Google Maps/Google Earth and the time- and route schedule

    The Amstel Gold Race 2016 race route on Google Maps/Google Earth and the time- and route scheduleThis Sunday, the Dutch classic, the Amstel Gold Race, will take place between Maastricht and the Rijksweg in Vilt. Indeed, since 2013, the finish is no longer on top of the Cauberg in Valkenburg but at the same location as where the races of the 2012 cycling World Championships finished.

    The race route of the Amstel Gold Race 2016 - which is the 51st edition - is a little bit different from last year's race route but the UCI WorldTour race still contains the same 34 climbs (in 2011 we went up from 31 climb to 32 and in 2012 back to 31, before going up to 34 in 2013). In this article you'll find the time- and route schedule and the race route on Google Maps. You can also download the race route in Google Earth for example to do a virtual fly-over of the race.
