The Ardennes classics concludes with the Liège-Bastogne-Liège, known fondly as "La Doyenne" (The Old Lady), as it's the oldest of the Monuments. What it lacks in youth it more than makes up for in nastiness, with the route packed with relentless climbs that include the Col du Rosier, La Redoute, the Cote des Forges and the Roche-au-Faucons. Join us for a spin as we explain how to get a 2021 Liège-Bastogne-Liège live stream and watch UCI WorldTour cycling online wherever you are right now.

The start list for the 2021 Liège-Bastogne-Liège features a multitude of past winners, most notably four-time champ Alejandro Valverde (Movistar), Dan Martin (Israel Start-Up Nation), Jakob Fuglsang (Astana - Premier Tech), Wout Poels (Bahrain - Victorious) and Philippe Gilbert (Lotto Soudal), who plans to retire at the end of next season.

Last year's race was won by Primož Roglič, who'll once again be riding for Team Jumbo-Visma. It was a thrilling affair, which ended with a catalog of embarrassing errors from - of all people - the newly crowned world champion, Julian Alaphilippe.

After nearly causing a collision, he started celebrating too early and was just pipped to the finish line by Roglič. To add insult to injury, Alaphilippe was then relegated to fifth place by race officials.

Read on for everything you need to know to watch a Liège-Bastogne-Liège live stream from anywhere in the world today.
