About La Flèche Wallonne Women
La Flèche Wallonne Féminine is the third oldest one-day race on the women’s racing calendar, only the Trofeo Alfredo Binda and Emakumeen Euskal Bira are older. As a result, it’s one of the most prestigious races of the season and therefore a big target for many elite riders.
The race takes place in Wallonia, Belgium, and tackles a hilly route around the Ardennes, a region renowned for its short, sharp climbs and dense forests. Despite a number of climbs featuring on the route, the race almost always comes down to a thrilling drag race up the iconic final climb, the Mur de Huy - one of the steepest and most gruelling finishing climbs in the sport of cycling.
The race’s first edition was held back in 1998 under the organisation of ASO. Since then the route has been tweaked and the total distance extended, but the flavour of the race has remained exactly the same - a hilly route leading to one dramatic climax on the Mur de Huy.
The ‘Wall of Huy’ is only short, at 1.3km in length, but with an average gradient of 10% and max gradients of 26% it is easily one of the hardest climbs the riders will face all year. These gruelling gradients create a thrilling spectacle for fans watching from both the roadside and at home, almost every year we’re treated to a slow-motion sprint between some of the world’s best climbers and uphill sprinters.
