La Doyenne: Liege-Bastogne-Liege | Cycling Art Print
'The climber's classic', Liège-Bastogne-Liège is also known as La Doyenne ‘The Oldest’. First run in 1892, the race winds through the rugged beauty of the Belgian Ardennes, full of winding climbs, deep valleys and conifer-clad peaks. At its climax, the riders race up La Côte de la Roche aux Faucons, 'The Rocks with Falcons'.
Always decisive, it's one of the pivotal moments of every race, and it’s celebrated with diving falcons in the image. The road features the names of some of the greats who have conquered the race - Kelly, Argentin, Merckx, Hinault, Gilbert. La Doyenne is perhaps the toughest of all the Monuments, and only the very best can win it - a race for the ages.
