On Sunday, Luxembourg's Bob Jungels won the Liege-Bastogne-Liege 'Monument' classic.

Sprinting away from the pelothon away over the top of the Cote de la Roche aux Faucons, the Quick Step-Floor cyclist upset the pre-race favourites to achieve victory in the Belgian classic.

Canada's Michal Woods finished in second place with France's Romain Bardet in third, making up the podium.

In the women's race, Anna van der Breggen from the Netherlands retained her title, having won it in 2017. She also retained her Fleche Wallonne classic recently to cement her place at the top of women's cycling in the Spring Classics.

The Liege-Bastogne-Liege race is the fourth of five classics after Milan-San Remo, the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix, and before the Tour of Lombardy.

Wearing the Luxembourg national champion's jersey, Bob Jungels achieved what Luxembourg's Andy Schleck did nine years ago in this race as Jungels made the same break as Schleck did, 19km from the finish.​
