La Fleche Wallonne Feminine 2019 – Preview

The second of the three Ardennes Classics, La Flèche Wallonne Féminine, is steeped in history. Two years ago, the Amstel Gold Race returned from a hiatus, and organisers of Liège-Bastogne-Liège added a women's race alongside its long-running men's event, which makes the 22nd edition of the women's edition of Flèche Wallonne the more established of the three races. Anna van der Breggen (Boels-Dolmans) has won the last four editions, and if she can defend her title on April 24, it will not only mark a fifth victory in a row, but she will equal Marianne Vos' five career-wins on the Mur de Huy.
