Daniel Martin (Garmin-Sharp) took the win in Liège, crossing the line 3 second ahead of Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha) and 9 ahead of Alejandro Valverde (Movistar Team).

Sander Armee (Topsport Vlaanderen – Baloise), Bart De Clercq (Lotto), Vincent Jérôme (Europcar), Pirmin Lang (IAM Cycling), Frederik Veucheulen (Vacansoleil) and Jonathan Fumeaux (IAM Cycling) formed the day’s break after 10km of racing – after 44km of racing, their gap was at 14 minutes.  By the time the break hit the Côte de Stockeu, their gap had dropped to 5:29 with 90km left to race.  With 50km left to race, their gap was down to 1:28.  They were eventually caught on the Côte de la Redoute – Damiano Cunego (Lampre-Merida) attacked with Romain Bardet (AG2R La Mondiale), Alberto Losada (Katusha), Mathias Frank (BMC) and Pierrick Fedrigo (FDJ).  They gained a maximum gap of 18 seconds.  Alberto Contador (Team Saxo-Tinkoff) was the next to attack.  Ryder Hesjedal, Carlos Betancur (AG2R La Mondiale), Rigoberto Uran (Sky), Igor Anton (Euskaltel-Euskadi), Giampaolo Caruso (Katusha) and Rui Costa (Movistar) bridged.  A group of favorites soon made their way to the front.
