6th Liege-Bastogne-Liege 1911 (Belgium)

By Barry Boyce, CyclingRevealed Historian

L-B-L's Return... again!

Liege-Bastogne-Liege in 1911 continued to find its identity and proper place on the racing calender. The 1910 Milan-San Remo, Paris-Roubaix, and Lombardia had become well established Classics. In 1911 L-B-L returned to the racing calender and expanded the field to include amateurs and added pro-independents (professionals without a team) riders. Of the 108 riders at the start most were pro-indepndents. The organizers were beginning to attract more notable riders.

Belgian Joseph Van Daele showed his talent by riding away from Armand Lenoir to claim a 30 second victory.
