Despite being the clear favourite of the race, despite the efforts of his rivals in the closing stages of the 101st edition of the race, there wasn't much anyone could do against unstoppable Alejandro Valverde. The Spaniard claimed his third Liège-Bastogne-Liège success by beating to the line Frenchman Julian Alaphilippe and his compatriot Joaquim Rodriguez. A few days after winning the Fleche Wallonne, the 35-year-old wins his 6th Ardennes Classic.
