Michael Woods has finished in the Top10 all six times that he's concluded Liège-Bastogne-Liège. It is a great track record that the Canadian will look to continue, as he leads Israel - Premier Tech and with great legs.
The 36-year old has talked of his best form since 2021 this week, as he rode to a fourth place at Flèche Wallone. The brutal gradients of the Mur de Huy suit him perfectly, however at La Doyenne Woods has had in the past a better result as he was runner-up to Bob Jungels back in 2018.
PREVIEW | Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2023 - Will Tadej Pogacar conquer the Ardennes triptych or will Remco Evenepoel defend his title?
Israel come in with a strong team including riders such as Krists Neilands and Simon Clarke who have shown good form this season and are well suited to the hilly terrain. Nick Schultz and Daryl Impey could also be outsiders on the day if they had their best legs but will likely play a support role, alongside Guillaume Boivin and Mads Würtz Schmidt who wrap up the block to end the spring classics.
Israel - Premier Tech for Liège-Bastogne-Liège:
Michael Woods, Daryl Impey, Krists Neilands, Guillaume Boivin, Simon Clarke, Mads Würtz Schmidt and Nick Schultz.
