Anna van der Breggen will line up in an attempt to win a seventh consecutive title at La Flèche Wallonne Feminine in Belgium on Wednesday. It’s easier said than done, however, as the double world champion will face a number of contenders looking to claim the crown on the Mur de Huy.

La Flèche Wallonne Feminine is the oldest of the three Ardennes Classics, with a series only having been in place for women since 2017 when Amstel Gold Race Ladies Edition made its return after a 14-year hiatus and the debut of Liège-Bastogne-Liège.
