Pauline Ferrand Prevot (Rabo Liv Women's Cycling Team) won the elite women's La Flèche Wallonne World Cup in Belgium on Wednesday. She crossed the line over the Mur de Huy with a one-second advantage ahead of runner-up Lizzie Armitstead (Boels Dolmans Cycling Team) and Elisa Longo Borghini (Hitec Products) in third.

"I had legs of fire during the first pass through the wall," Ferrand Prevot said in Lavenir.fr. "As Marianne [Vos] felt a little worse, we decided to play my card in the final. I thank her very much because she did a lot of work to put me in an ideal position. What happened for me is awesome."

Ferrand Prevot's teammate and current road and cyclo-cross world champion, Marianne Vos, went into the race as the defending champion and had won the race on five previous occasions. However, it was her first road race of the season after an extended break in the spring. 

Armitstead maintained her lead in the overall World Cup standings. Heading into the race, she had 320 points ahead of Emma Johansson (Orica-AIS) in second with 240 points while Anna Van de Breggen was in third place with 220 points.
