    The Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2017 race route on Google Maps/Google Earth: the 103rd 'Doyenne'!In 1892 the very first edition of Liège-Bastogne-Liège took place, which logically gives this race the nickname La Doyenne (the oldest one). That was 125 years ago and this year we'll see the 103rd edition of the Belgian classic which will take place between Liège, Bastogne and ... Ans (finish location of the race since 1992). You can always read 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 modified quite a bit in 2017, especially due to roadworks which prevent the race to go through Stavelot.
    In this article you'll find all the details of the Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2017 race route with the road map on Google Maps/Google Earth, the profile of the race and the time- and route schedule.

    This year, the race route is a bit different from usual, especially because of the roadworks which prevent the race from going through Stavelot and which thus wipes away the Côte de Wanne and the Côte de la Haute Levée from the race route, just like the Côte de Stockeu which was already removed from the race route last year. Instead, we'll see the côtes de Pont, Bellevaux and de la Ferme Libert.

    In the final part of the race, A.S.O. added a 600 meters long climb, with cobble stones, at 10.5%, the Côte de la Rue Naniot in Liège, last year but this year it's no longer part of the race. Therefore, the last climb will be the Côte de Saint-Nicolas at 5.5 kilometers of the finish in Ans.

    After the start from the Place Saint-Lambert in Liège at 10.10AM (the advertising caravan will leave at 9.10AM), the real start will be on the N30 around 10.25AM.

    The first climb will be at 70 kilometers from the start: the Côte de La Roche-en-Ardenne (2.8 km at 6.2%).
    After the visit of Bastogne on the "Rond-point La Doyenne" (this roundabout is dedicated to "La Doyenne" all year long), the feeding zone will follow before the different climbs which are Côte de Saint-Roch (1 km @ 11.2%) and quite a bit further the Côte de Pont at 90 km from the finish (1 km @ 10.5%), the Côte de Bellevaux (1.1 km @ 6.8%) only 4 kilometers further and the Côte de la Ferme Libert (1.2 km @ 12.1%) another 8 km further.
    After the second feeding zone in Burnenville, the riders will climb the usual Col du Rosier (4.4 km @ 5.9%), Col du Maquisard (2.5 km @ 5%), the Côte de la Redoute at 35.5 km from the finish (2 km @ 8.9%), the Côte de la Roche-aux-Faucons (1.3 km @ 11%) and the Côte de Saint-Nicolas (1.2 km @ 8.6%). The finish will, as usual, be in the Rue Jean-Jaurès in Ans, 5.5 kilometers further.

    The finish is planned between 4.33PM and 5.12PM.
