LIEGE, Belgium (AP) -- Italy's Davide Rebellin won the Liege-Bastogne-Liege cycling race in a sprint finish Sunday, giving him the lead in the World Cup standings.
Michael Boogerd of the Netherlands was five seconds behind along with third-place finisher Alexander Vinokourov of Kazakhstan.
Rebellin also won the Amstel Gold race last week ahead of Boogerd.
Rebellin's victory in the oldest one-day classic on the cycling calendar gives him 200 points in the standings. Boogerd has 146.
Liege-Bastogne-Liege was first raced in 1892. It is one of the five biggest one-day races with Milan-San Remo, the Ronde of Flanders, Paris-Roubaix and the season-ending Tour of Lombardy.
