Liège-Bastogne-LiègeLiège-Bastogne-Liège is being broadcast live on Cycling.TV, and again I’m able to watch it without a subscription … much poorer quality video than a couple weeks ago for Paris-Roubaix, but I’ll take what I can get.

And even grainy/pixelated coverage of Phillippe Gilbert attacking hard on La Rédoute is pretty amazing.

And now Paolo Bettini pulls Gilbert back … and now Andy Schleck is taking a flyer … and Schleck is caught by Stefan Schumacher! With about 30km to go, this is going to be an exciting finish!

Definitely a lot Big Ring moves here.

Update, a few hours later:

Nice work by Valverde and Rebellin to reel the youngster in, with older brother Fränk on their wheel. It was too bad that Fränk didn’t have the snap in his legs to drop the two other riders after the great set-up that Andy gave him … but the brothers still managed to finish third and fourth.

I wonder how many times (if ever) that’s happened in a Classic?
