The much-delayed 2020 Classics season is almost under way, with La Flèche Wallonne and La Flèche Wallonne Feminine kicking things off on Wednesday afternoon as the Ardennes Classics precede the cobbles for one season only.
Tour de France winner Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) is among the favourites in an open field, with no previous winners – Alejandro Valverde, world champion Julian Alaphilippe or Philippe Gilbert on the start line of the men's race.
Cyclingnews will bring you full live coverage, reports, results, news, interviews and analysis throughout the race. Read on to find out how to watch the 2020 Classics season via live stream, no matter your location, with ExpressVPN.
While the men's race will be aired in full across various platforms, 90 minutes of the women's race will be aired across several broadcasters, including Eurosport, GCN, NBC Sports Gold, and local channel RTBF.
Big-name riders taking on the women's race which is 124km long and features two trips up the famous Mur de Huy climb, include Van der Breggen and Vos, as well as Kasia Niewiadoma (Canyon-SRAM), Demi Vollering (Parkhotel Valkenburg), Ashleigh Moolman Pasio (CCC-Liv), Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig (FDJ Nouvelle-Aquitaine Futuroscope) and the Trek-Segafredo duo of Elizabeth Deignan and Elisa Longo Borghini.
The men will take on three ascents of the steep finishing climb, with 202km separating them from victory in Huy. Dan Martin (Israel Start-Up Nation), Richie Porte (Trek-Segafredo), Mikel Landa (Bahrain McLaren), Daniel Martínez (EF Pro Cycling), Michał Kwiatkowski (Ineos Grenadiers), Marc Hirschi (Team Sunweb) and Tim Wellens (Lotto Soudal) will all be taking part on Wednesday.
