How to watch Liège–Bastogne–Liège 2024: live stream cycling online

Peleton at the Liege-Bastogne-Liege.

Liège–Bastogne–Liège, or La Doyenne (The Old Lady), was first run in 1892 and is the oldest Monument on the cycling calendar. It's also one of the hardest to win. Set in the Ardennes region of Belgium and covering 259km with 10 vicious climbs, its savage course always separates the best from the rest, so read on to find out how to watch Liège–Bastogne–Liège 2024 live streams from anywhere with a VPN — and potentially for FREE.

It’s the showdown we have been waiting for all Spring: Mathieu Van der Poel vs Tadej Pogačar in the oldest and most arduous Monument on the cycling calendar. Pogačar, a previous winner in 2021, must start as favorite as his slighter build lends itself more to the continuous short steep climbs but when Van der Poel decides he wants to win a race, few can stop him. It will be EPIC!

Leaving Liège, the course meanders south to Bastogne, and up until this point all is usually calm. It's when the race turns to head back north that the action kicks in. Starting with the Côte de Saint-Roch, the course tackles 10 classic ascents including the likes of the Col du Rosier, the iconic Côte de la Redoute and the final wicked test — the Côte de La Roche-aux-Faucons. After this climb at 13.3km to go, the race will then head into the heart of the industrial city of Liège for the grandstand finish.

In the absence of last year’s winner, Belgium's Remco Evenepoel, after his terrible crash in the Basque Country, the riders hoping to challenge the two favorites will be the victor of this year’s Amstel Gold race, Tom Pidcock (Ineos Grenadiers), Mattias Skjelmose (Lidl Trek), Simon Yates (Team Jayco–AlUla), Matej Mohorič (Bahrain - Victorious) and Aleksandr Vlasov (BORA - hansgrohe).

Dry but cold conditions greeted the peloton as they woke in Liège to face one of the toughest days on the cycling calendar. Can anyone stop the two favourites and will they provide the spectacle the fans crave.  

Read on to see how to catch the action from wherever you live.

It's only natural that you might want to watch a 2024 Liège–Bastogne–Liège live stream from your home country, but what if you're not there when the race is on?

Look no further than a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN makes it look as if you're surfing the web from your home country, rather than the one you're in. That means you can access the streaming services you already pay for, from anywhere on Earth. Or anywhere that has an internet connection, at least.

They're totally legal, inexpensive and easy to use. We've tested lots of the best VPN services and our favorite right now is NordVPN. It's fast, works on loads of devices and even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, NordVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.S. and want to view an Australian service, you'd select Australia from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to SBS or another streaming service and watch the action.
