Race organisers ASO announced revised courses for the women’s peloton at La Flèche Wallonne Feminine and Liège-Bastogne-Liège Femmes today, with riders having to climb Mur de Huy three times during the mid-week Flèche Wallonne on April 20. In the final installment of the Ardennes Classics on April 24, the riders will tackle Côte de Mont-le-Soie for the first time en route to Liège. 

Team SD Worx took both titles last year, Anna van der Breggen winning for a seventh time on the Huy and Demi Vollering claiming the title in Liège. Van der Breggen has since retired from competition, leaving the top step of the podium open for the 24 teams named to the start line for Flèche Wallonne Femmes. The same roster of teams make up the invitees for Liège-Bastogne-Liège.
