British cyclists have big shoes to fill and the Adam Yates odds in the Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2019 have drifted out a little to 17/1 at Unibet, one of the best online betting sites in Belgium these days, which whilst still respectable leaves him a lot of work to do in one of the most challenging races in modern cycling. This is possibly because it is one of the Monument races, those horrors that have stood the test of time and bring back very origins of harsh, hard competitive cycling.

Famously the commander of US troops surrounded in Bastogne during World War II sent a one-word reply to a request he and his men to surrender to the Germans. That reply was “Nuts” and aptly that’s precisely what you have to be to take part in this utterly ridiculous piece of human suffering thinly disguised as a cycle race. Adam Yates odds in the Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2019 may see him following in the footsteps of British cycling greats, but that doesn’t make him sane.

Understand this isn’t a distance thing, although at 256 kilometers (that’s 165 miles) it’s no quick jaunt, no this is about the climbs involved. There are hills on this race I’d not attempt to walk up without ropes, crampons and a Sherpa guide. If you think those Adam Yates odds in the Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2019 at Unibet are a bit steep, check out the Côte de la Roche-aux-Faucons it makes this not a bet on sports in Belgium but more a wager on the torture of thin men in lycra.

The climbs don’t even begin till you’ve ridden 121 kilometers, then hit you thick and fast with the Côte de Saint-Rochwith an 11% gradient and the Côte de Stockeu a ridiculous 12.5% incline the worst, but the Côte de la Redoute will doubtless see some drop off the pace as their legs suddenly remember humans can’t actually do this. Those Adam Yates odds in the Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2019 might have got longer at Unibet, but he’s still in with a shout on Sunday.

Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2019

  • Monument No.4
  • Inaugurated – 1892
  • Edition – 105th
  • Location – Ardennes, Belgium
  • Type – Road Race
  • Length – 256km
  • Climbs – 11 Named Hills
  • Surface – Tarmac
  • Nickname – La Doyenne

This is mostly due to the La Doyenne, as they call it, being as much a mental challenge as a physical one. Those Adam Yates odds in the Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2019 reflect his obvious toughness in that department. However, before you rush out to take advantage of Belgian gambling laws to back him to at least get a place finish, do remember; with Jakob Fuglsang on 6/1 you’d have be on drugs to stake too much on him being able to actually win this race.

The odds are 17/1 on Yates this time

Fortunately, everyone in modern cycling is on drugs, or mainlining the blood of virgins who’ve only ever lived on mountain tops. So perhaps Alejandro Valverde at 10/1 or Michal Kwiatkowski at the same price might tempt you to hit up Unibet and wager neither of them has a cardiac on the Côte des Forges. That said the best reason not to pick up those Adam Yates odds in the Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2019 is that Julian Alaphilippe gets just 11/4 to take this most grueling victory.

2019 Liège-Bastogne-Liège Odds

  • Tim Wellens – 30/1
  • Peter Sagan – 28/1
  • RomainBardet – 22/1
  • Vincenzo Nibali – 22/1
  • Adam Yates – 17/1
  • Michael Matthews – 15/1
  • Maximilian Schachmann – 14/1
  • Michael Kwiatkowski – 10/1
  • Alejandro Valverde – 10/1
  • Jakob Fuglsang – 6/1
  • Julian Alaphilippe – 11/4

Daniel Martin gets the same 17/1 price as those Adam Yates odds in the Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2019, which puts him behind the 14/1 that Maximilian Schachmanngarners. But it keeps him ahead of Vincenzo Nibali and Romain Bardet both of whom only get 22/1 and won’t be seeing a lot of takers at Unibet, one of the best online sportsbook sites in Belgium these days, over the course of the weekend. It’s a nightmare race but one Fuglsang can probably wake from a winner.
