On Friday 21 April 2006 a group of cyclists went for a ride. They would cover the last 100km of the course used for Liege-Bastogne-Liège the following Sunday.
We went along for the ride.
When it came to race day, Alejandro Valverde won. Horner was best from the team, in 8th place. Cadel was 80th.
The next week, Horner won a stage of the Tour de Romandie and Evans took the title of the Swiss stage race on the final day.
For the sake of a Friday Flashback, we look back 10 years and join the Davitamon-Lotto team in the Belgian Ardennes.
Our driver for the day, Allan Peiper.
