About La Flèche Wallonne
La Flèche Wallonne is one of cycling’s oldest, with its first edition taking place back in 1936, and one of the few to continue on through the second world war. The earlier editions of the race were vastly different to the classic drag-race format we’ve come to know and love. These older races often exceeded distances of 250km, with the longest ever travelling for a leg-shattering distance of 300km from Tournai to Liège back in 1938.
Over the last few decades the race has settled into a more rigid format. The starting town changes quite regularly, but the finishing town - Huy - has remained fixed on the route since 1983. It’s around Huy where the riders embark on three laps of a tough circuit containing multiple short, sharp climbs, including the infamous Mur de Huy - one of the steepest finishing climbs the riders will face all year, with some ramps exceeding 25%!
The organisers have tried to spice up the race a little over the last couple of editions by moving the penultimate climb, the Côte de Cherave, closer to the finish. While it has catalysed some late attacks, the Cherave has ultimately failed to change the outcome of the race - we still see an inevitable drag race up the Mur year after year.
