Liege-Bastogne-Liege

The last of the Spring classics is tomorrow. Here is the route map:


I'm picking Belgian Philippe Gilbert for the victory, but I'll be rooting for Chris Horner.

Live streaming of the race should be available (see here) starting around 6:15 am or so, EDT.

UPDATE: Cyclingprof favorite Jens Voigt attacked with 100km to go (who else would do something that crazy?). He's probably just under orders to soft up the race for the Schleck brothers (his Saxo Bank teammates). Jens is brought back to the pack with about 60km to go.

UPDATE: The real fireworks started on a climb with about 20km to go. Andy Schleck attacked. Philippe Gilbert went with him. Eventually they were joined by Alberto Contador, Cadel Evans, Alejandro Valverde, and couple other select riders. It is from this group that the race winner will emerge.

FINAL UPDATE: Vinokourov and Kolobnev hold off the chasing group of Gilbert, Valverde and Evans to take first and second. Valverde takes third.
