There is no question that Anna van der Breggen - affectionately known as the Queen of the Mur de Huy - wants to win a seventh consecutive title at La Flèche Wallonne, however, she revealed that a recent illness may have set her form back ahead of Wednesday’s race, putting her bid for victory into question. 

In a round-table interview on the eve of the event, the double world champion admitted that she won’t know how she would feel until the racing gets underway but that if she is not in a position to win, her SD Worx teammates Demi Vollering and Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio will strike out for a victory of their own on the Mur de Huy.
