Up and down in Liège-Bastogne-Liège
Join us for on view on sunday’s monumental Ardennes Classic that sent the riders on a route going up and down for 262,9 kilometers.
Tinkoff-Saxo started the day with high expectations and just as high hopes. Roman Kreuziger had shown great shape during the week and the training leading up to Liège-Bastogne-Liège. After a strong ride by the team and the team captain himself, Roman Kreuziger crossed the finish line in Ans, Liège in 7th position. Kreuziger was on many of the important climbs during the final in front trying to create a battle of attrition. But the front groups in the 100th edition of the race came together in the absolute final part of the race, which meant that the durable Czech had to sprint against riders like Gerrans and Valverde.
