Liège-Bastogne-Liège — “La Doyenne” (“The Old Lady”) — is the oldest of the five monuments of road cycling, and this year’s men’s and women’s races are set for Sunday, April 24, 2022.

The 108th edition of the men’s race covers a route featuring 10 climbs across 254.7km, with the final climb at the 1.3km ascent of the Côte de la Roche aux Fauçons coming just 13km from the finish.

Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) is the defending champion of the men’s race. The monument was one of two he won the previous season, as well as riding away with his second consecutive Tour de France yellow jersey. But with the way Ineos Grenadiers have been racing the spring classics, a repeat win this year could be challenging.

While Pogačar’s 2021 win in Liège was significant as one of the two monuments he won in a single season along with his second consecutive Tour victory, it might still be overshadowed by the memory of Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) winning the 2020 edition when newly-minted world champion Julian Alaphilippe (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl) celebrated too early, and the Slovenian took the win with a perfectly timed bike-throw.

The women’s edition of Liège-Bastogne-Liège, now in its sixth year, will take on 142.1km and has seven categorized climbs in store. It also finishes after the climb of Côte de la Roche aux Fauçons.

Demi Vollering (SD Worx) was the most recent winner of the women’s race, with Annemiek van Vleuten (Movistar Team) and recent Paris-Roubaix winner Elisa Longo Borghini (Trek-Segafredo) also on the podium in 2021. At the mid-week Fléche Wallonne 2022, Van Vleuten was narrowly outsprinted by Marta Cavalli (FDJ Nouvelle-Aquitaine Futuroscope), while Vollering was a handful of seconds back in third.
