The 2022 Spring Classics draw to a close this week as the men's and women's pelotons head to Wallonia to take on the Ardennes Classics.

The series of one-day races in Belgium, France, and Italy packing the calendar through March and April bring four Monuments throughout the spring: Milan-San Remo, the Tour of Flanders, Paris-Roubaix, and Liège-Bastogne-Liège.

On Wednesday, the riders will be in Huy, south of Liège, to take on the steep slopes of the Mur de Huy at La Flèche Wallonne and La Flèche Wallonne Féminine.

Cyclingnews will bring you full reports, results, news, interviews, and analysis throughout the races. Read on to find out how to watch the spring Classics via live stream, no matter your location, with ExpressVPN.

The men will face a 202km battle from Blegny to the Mur de Huy (1.3km at 9.4 per cent), with the famous climb being tackled twice before the finish on the closing lap around Huy.

Three ascents apiece of the Côte d'Ereffe (2km at 5.8 per cent) and the Côte de Cherave (1.4km at 7.9 per cent) also lie before the finish, though the race will be decided on the last ascent of the Mur de Huy.

The women will take on a similar route, though instead measuring in at 133km. The same three laps of the finishing circuit are included, though, with those three ascents of the Mur de Huy set to be decisive.

The women will be looking to take up the mantle from seven-time winner Anna van der Breggen, with leading contenders including Demi Vollering, Ashleigh Moolman Pasio (SD Worx), Kasia Niewiadoma (Canyon-Sram), Annemiek van Vleuten (Movistar), Elisa Longo Borghini (Trek-Segafredo), and Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig (FDJ-Nouvelle Aquitaine-Futuroscope).
