Bob Jungels wins Liege-Bastogne-Liege via a solo effort

Bob Jungels

 

Quick Step Floors’ rider Bob Jungels has won this year’s Liege-Bastogne-Liege race producing a spectacular performance to win what’s known as the oldest classic from the five monument races.

 

Canada’s rider Michael Woods (EF Education First/Drapac) claimed second place ahead of Fleche Wallonne champion Julian Alaphilippe, Jungels’ teammate.

 

“I made the most of my rouleur abilities in the finale. And I needed to be very careful with how I used my strength, especially when we got to Saint-Nicolas,” Jungels said.

 

“I couldn’t push too deep. And then I still feared being caught in the finale. It was the longest kilometer in my life. I only saw I could win when I entered the last curve, not before.”
