In the time it takes to climb the Mur de Huy half a dozen times, Daniel Friebe and Lionel Birnie discuss the uphill cheese roll, aka Flèche Wallonne.
Is it the most predictable race on the calendar, or is there some hidden nuance to the final climb? We discuss how the race panned out and other associated Ardennes trivia before attention turns to the big one, Liège-Bastogne-Liège, on Sunday.
Arrivée will return then with Daniel and Lionel covering the men’s race and Rose Manley and Lizzy Banks tackling the women’s edition.
