- Women's team Boels-Dolmans won the 2017 Amstel Gold Race and the Fleche Wallonne.  They look to wrap up the week in the Ardennes by winning Liege-Bastogne-Liege as well.  Lizzie Deignan:  "We’re definitely motivated for a clean sweep.  The Ardennes races are important to us, and they’re important to our sponsors. The way I see it, our motivation to win is greater and, if we pull it off, the win is even sweeter. We thrive on pressure. If you don’t, cycling isn’t the sport for you."

In 1980, Bernard Hinault (Renault) rode to an epic Liège-Bastogne-Liège victory in the snow.  It was already snowing at the start and according to rider Gilbert Duclos-Lassalle, some riders picked up their rider numbers and promptly went home.  At kilometer 45, Hinault, who had just one teammate left in the race (!), seemed ready to abandon as well when his directeur sportif Cyrille Guimard told him a climb was approaching and the effort would allow him to warm up!  At kilometer 70, 110 riders of 174 had already abandoned.  Only 21 riders made it to the finish.  How bad was it?  Duclos-Lassalle (11th) told L'Equipe in 2010 that he doesn't even remember finishing.  Hinault told L'Equipe that he has never fully regained sensation in two fingers.  Many of the abandoned riders were staying warm at the Ramada 200 meters from the finish line when Hinault rode by.  Hinault, who knew they were there watching behind the windows, saluted them from his bike "like a general reviewing his troops."  (L'Equipe)

The L'Equipe photo pictured above is one of the all-time great photos in pro cycling history.  I found it on display on the L'Equipe stand at a book fair in Paris in February, 2006 as L'Equipe celebrated its 60 year anniversary.
