The 2021 Fleche Wallonne Will Come Down To The Mur de Huy, Max Schachmann, Anna Van Der Breggen Favorites

Apr 20, 2021

The men's and women's peloton arrives in the Belgian Ardennes this Wednesday for La Fleche Wallonne. This everything you need to know.

Anna Van Der Breggen has won the past six consecutive editions of the race and is a clear favorite for the 2021 edition. Mark Hirschi is the defending men's champion, but question marks surround his current form. 

The final climb of the Mur de Huy is so steep and difficult that it will almost certainly decide the race. Michael Woods put in an impressive performance in 2020 and has a shot at winning the race tomorrow.

Kasia Niewiadoma displayed that she has the climbing and attacking legs needed at this past weekend's Amstel Gold Race, while Max Schachmann is Michael's favorite after a consistent and impressive spring campaign.
