Anna van der Breggen has achieved the seemingly impossible task of winning a seventh consecutive title at La Flèche Wallonne in Belgium. The double world champion said she was looking forward to seeing the new champions of the Mur de Huy in future editions of La Flèche Wallonne.

"It’s a strange thought that this is my last time to race the Flèche Wallonne," Van der Breggen said. "Next time, I won’t bother the girls anymore. It’s up to somebody else now. I’m really happy to end up like this. Seven straight wins. It’s incredible!”
