Etixx - Quick-Step has announced the selection that will participate in Liège - Bastogne - Liège, a 253km race that concludes the Ardennes Classics, on Sunday, April 26th.

 

The one-day race, from Liège to Ans, is known for its challenging categorized climbs along the parcours. There are a total of 10 in the 2015 edition: Cote de St Roche, (800m, 12% average gradient), Cote de Wanne (2.7km, 7% average gradient), Cote De Stockeu (1.1km, 10.5% average gradient), Cote de la Haute Levee (3.4km, 6% average gradient), Cote du Rosier (5.4km 5.9% average gradient), Cote de la Vecquee (3.1km, 5.9% average gradient), La Redoute (2.1km, 8.1% average gradient), Cote de Sprimont (1.4km, 4.7% average gradient), Cote de la Roche Aux Falcons (1.5km, 9.9% average gradient), and finally Cote de St Nicholas (1km, 11.1% average gradient). The parcours is known for its up-and-down nature, including uncategorized ascents such as the uphill to the finish line.
