The Ardennes classics are heating up!

Last weekend was the Amstel Gold race and now we have La Fleche Wallonne on Wednesday and Liege-Bastogne-Liege on Sunday. In addition, the Giro del Trentino started today! You can follow any of those previous links to check out highlights or watch the live race coverage from Europe if you are prepared to be up early. Cyclingnews always has good coverage as well (and that is where I stole the following image from).
