Surreal end to the race Liège-Bastogne-Liège who have starred Primoz Roglic, and above all, Julian Alaphilippe, on a straight that has ended up deciding the photo finish. The Slovenian cyclist of the Jumbo-Visma proclaimed himself champion of the 106th edition of the race Belgian in a heart attack final snatching the title from his French rival.

Alaphilippe, who wore the rainbow jersey that accredits him as world champion, fell a few inches away from making a historic double that had not been seen for 40 years. And all to celebrate ahead of time.

After more than six and a half hours of racing, the Frenchman faced the finish line with a relative advantage over Roglic and the Swiss Marc Hirschi. As usual, the Deceuninck-Quick Step rider he celebrated his victory in the final stretch, waiting for his rivals to slow down.

Nothing could be further from the truth, since Roglic, who wanted to remove the thorn of the Tour de France, went with everything to victory and ended up snatching it from Alaphilippe on the same finish line. The photo finish ended up corroborating the overtaking of the Slovenian in the last inches of the race.
