Nicknamed 'La Doyenne' ('The Old Lady'), the Liège-Bastogne-Liège is the race every rolling terrain specialist dreams of winning. This year will be the 108th edition and the current record holder remains Eddy Merckx, who won the LBL five times.

Last time out, Tadej Pogačar took victory. The Slovenian will be back to defend his title after finishing a disappointing 12th in Wednesday's La Flèche Wallonne. The women's 2022 Liège-Bastogne-Liège will cover 142.1km and feature seven climbs.

As ever, the first 150km of the men's race will be used to form breakaway groups with the key tactical battles reserved for the final stages. The Côte de la Roche-aux-Faucons, with ramps as steep as 11 percent, should reveal who has the appetite for a lung-busting sprint to the finish.

Fans in Australia can watch the full race free on SBS On Demand. Make sure you know how to watch a Liège-Bastogne-Liège live stream from where you are.

In Australia, SBS will offer a free Liège-Bastogne-Liège live stream.

Travelling away from Australia this week? You can always use a VPN to watch the Liège-Bastogne-Liège free stream on SBS from abroad. We recommend ExpressVPN. Full details next.

How to watch Liège-Bastogne-Liège from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Liège-Bastogne-Liège rights holders, you won't be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

Try ExpressVPN risk-free for 30 days
ExpressVPN hits it for six with a 30-day money back guarantee with its VPN service. You can use it to watch on your mobile, tablet, laptop, TV, games console and more. There's 24/7 customer support and three months free when you sign-up.

How to use a VPN to watch Liège-Bastogne-Liège free stream

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.

2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For Liège-Bastogne-Liège, you may wish to choose 'Australia' to access SBS.

3. Then head over to SBS on your browser or device and enjoy a free Liège-Bastogne-Liège live stream.

If, for whatever reason, you can't get it working, then do remember that you have the comfort of a 30-day money back guarantee with ExpressVPN. You could also try NordVPN, which also comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, and Surfshark which offers 24 hour assistance.
