Liège-Bastogne-Liège marks the last of the spring Monuments and is the last chance at a major Classics victory in the first half of the season – here’s how to watch the 2021 edition.
This year’s edition will be held on Sunday, April 25 as both the men’s and women’s peloton will take on the brutal hills of the Ardennes.
In the women’s race, the star riders will include Marianne Vos (Jumbo-Visma), Annemiek van Vleuten (Movistar) and Kasia Niewiadoma (Canyon-SRAM), while last year’s winner Lizzie Diegan (Trek-Segafredo) will not be returning this year.
For the men’s race, the Classics specialists and climbers will once again be duking it out in Belgium for the title, including last year’s winner Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) and Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck – Quick-Step).
Last year, Deignan came out on top after breaking free of her rivals, while the men’s edition came down to an unforgettable finish, with Alaphilippe celebrating too early and handing the win to Roglič.

How to live stream Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2021 when you’re not in your country
If you’re heading abroad during the racing –whether that be inside the UK or anywhere else – you may find access to your favourite home broadcaster is restricted by location. Luckily there is a way you can keep watching anyway – downloading and installing a VPN, which allows you to trick your computer into thinking it’s back at home. This allows you to find your native broadcaster coverage without having to resort to an illegal steam, as long as you stick to the terms and conditions set out by the broadcaster.
Setting up a VPN is simple – just download, install, open the app and select your location.
Try out ExpressVPN for its speed, security and simplicity to use. We also like that it’s compatible with so many devices and streaming services (e.g. Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Xbox, PS4, etc).
There are other great options out there of course, but Express VPN gives you the added benefit of a 30-day money back guarantee and three months free with a yearly plan.
