One slope after another, climbing and descending, and all in the beautiful Walloon countryside. Many cyclists dream of the iconic Liège-Bastogne-Liège course. Conquer symbolic LBL slopes spanning 253 kilometers in the ultimate challenge and immerse yourself in the breathtaking finale of LBL. Famous slopes such as Côte de Saint-Roch, the Côte des Forges and the Côte de la Roche-aux-Faucons, among others, can fill up the legs as well as the heart. Imagine yourself as Remco Evenepoel on the Côte de La Redoute deep into the finale or sprinting like Demi Vollering to victory. In addition to the 253km, we also foresee an 79km and 155km course with as many iconic parts of La Doyenne as possible.

Both in the 253 km (4400 altimeters), the 155 km (2700 altimeters) and the 79 km (1500 altimeters) of the LBL Challenge you will have to dose your strength well.

You will start and finish in Banneux and you will also face the Côte de Bonnerue, the Côte de Cornémont and the Côte de Saint-Roch just like the pros. The middle of the course features a whole new section, which is at least as beautiful and as challenging as the finale. Given that some municipalities located on the classic course decided to not longer allow tour rides of more than 500 participants, we ended up with this variant. With the Mur de Durbuy, the Côte de Chambralles, the Côte de la Roche-en-Ardenne, the Côte de Chabrehez, the Col de Roche-à-Frêne and the Côte de Cortil, we can offer you some very challenging climbs, some of which, by the way, also have a history in the pro races!

Former winner and “child of the region” Philippe Gilbert will participate in the LBL Challenge. He is already looking forward to discovering this wonderfully revamped course: “I am very happy to participate in this Liège-Bastogne-Liège Challenge together with thousands of other cyclists. This event offers participants the opportunity to excel on a historic course, to share sporting and human values and to discover the magnificent region of the Ardennes!”
