La Flèche Wallonne 2017 Teams and Route Announced

THE PELOTON CLIMBS THE MUR DE HUY IN THE 2011 FLECHE WALLONNE

Organizers for the La Flèche Wallonne Classic, announced the names of the teams and details this year’s race, which will feature two finishing circuits including a final ascent atop the infamous Mur de Huy.

This year’s Ardenne Classic will take place between the Amstel Gold Race and Liege-Bastogne-Liege races, which will use much of the same finishing circuit as it did in last year, as well as the same format as  previous editions.

However, this year’s race will start in the town of Binche, and travel more than 200 kilometers before tackling the two ascents of the Cote d’Ereffe and Cote de Cherave, followed by a final climb to the finish atop the Mur de Huy.
