The Liège-Bastogne-Liège – the oldest of cycling's five monuments – brings out the best riders in the world today, 24th April. The 254.7km route contains 10 brutal Belgian climbs and starts at 9.20am BST. The weather is 16°C with scattered showers. Make sure you know to watch a Liège-Bastogne-Liège live stream for free from anywhere with a VPN.
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.

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 (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab)
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.
