La Flèche Wallonne Feminine will embark on a new fall date as part of the post-COVID-19 late-season Women's WorldTour race calendar. The one-day women's race famed for its finale on the Mur de Huy will now take place on September 30.

The UCI announced the revised-late season calendar in May and the Women's WorldTour has retained 16 of the original 22 events. It will include five stage races and 11 one-day races.

Flèche Wallonne is the oldest of the three one-day races that form the women's Ardennes Classics triple crown. The series has only been in place for women since 2017 when Amstel Gold Race Ladies Edition made its return after a 14-year hiatus, followed by the long-running La Flèche Wallonne, and the debut of Liège-Bastogne-Liège.

Since 1998, the women's peloton has been competing in their own La Flèche Wallonne Feminine and battling for the prestigious victory on the Mur de Huy. 

The race is synonymous with names like Marianne Vos and Anna van der Breggen who have both won it on five occasions.

The women's 124km race starts in Huy and then finishes on the Mur de Huy. This year's race is expected to include climbs over the Côte de Warre, and twice up the three ascents; Côte d'Ereffe, a new climb Côte du Chemin des Gueuses (1.8km with an average gradient of 6.5 per cent) and the Mur de Huy.

Anna van der Breggen (Boels Dolmans) won the 2019 La Flèche Wallonne Féminine for the fifth time in a row. She emerged as the strongest on the finishing climb of the Mur de Huy, finishing ahead of Annemiek van Vleuten (Mitchelton-Scott) and Annika Langvad (Boels Dolmans).
