The 2020 Ardennes Classics – as with many races this season – come in a wildly unfamiliar spot on this year's calendar, and in an unfamiliar order to boot. La Flèche Wallonne kicks off the week this year on September 30, sticking with its usual midweek slot before Liège-Bastogne-Liège, but also before Amstel Gold Race.

Besides that, little else has changed since last year, though there is a change in the route. The steep finish up the Mur de Huy remains, with the peloton tackling the hill twice on the long laps before the finish.
