Vuelta 2023 Favourites stage 20: Liège-Bastogne-Liège en salsa
image: Cor VosStage 20 is tailored for a huge breakaway battle. The route takes in a multitude of climbs and totals 4,300 vertical metres. (Slideshow route/profile)
On paper, the route suits title defender Remco Evenepoel’s characteristics just perfectly. With ten classified climbs – and a host of non-KOM tests – the route is similar to Liège-Bastogne-Liège, the Wallonian Monument in which he prevailed majestically, both this season as last season. That said, it’s a stage in a Grand Tour, which comes with a different dynamic.
Talking about Liège-Bastogne-Liège. Primoz Roglic won the race as well…
The question mark that’s hovering over this stage – is Jumbo-Visma going to control the race?
