Britain’s Lizzie Deignan won Liege-Bastogne-Liege in Belgium on Sunday to claim her first ever ‘monument’ – one of cycling’s biggest one-day races
Deignan made a solo break with 24km left to open up a minute’s lead.
Australian Grace Brown produced a late counter-attack to get within 10 seconds, but Deignan held on for her third victory since the season resumed.
A dramatic men’s race saw Primoz Roglic steal victory from Julian Alaphilippe as he celebrated on the line.
The 31-year-old Trek-Segafredo rider said having the “perfect team” was key to ending her wait to win a ‘monument’.
