It was a big day for Australian UCI WorldTour team Orica-GreenEdge yesterday as Simon Gerrans held off Movistar's Alejandro Valverde to win Liege-Bastogne-Liege, his second victory in a Monument following 2012's Milan-San Remo win.

Here's how the race unfolded from the team's perspective, with in-car cameras capturing the reaction of sports directors Matt White and Neil Stephens, as well as Gerrans' wife Rhana, who was following the race in a team vehicle. It's safe to say team staff and riders alike were rather chuffed with the way things turned out.

Enjoyed that.

Pain is just the French word for bread.
