It takes a special kind of rider to win La Flèche Wallonne, one with an enormous amount of raw power together with the ability to unleash it up the hideous 26% slopes of one of the most famous climbs in cycling. Yes the race may be 199 kilometres long but it always comes down to the final few hundred meters. 

Starting in Charleroi and finishing in Huy the route is built up of one large loop followed by four smaller ones each containing the Côte d’Ereffe (2.1km, 5%), Côte de Cherave (1.3km, 8.1%) and the dreaded Mur de Huy (1.3km, 9.6%). The first three ascents of the 'wall' will be ridden tempo but the final one will be all out war. 

Last year's winner Tadej Pogačar will not be returning this year, nor will multiple winner Julian Alaphilippe or last year's victor Dylan Teuns so the field is wide open. Heading the charge will be Primoz Roglic (Bora-hansgrohe), Pello Bilbao (Bahrain Victorious), Aleksandr Vlasov (Astana Qazaqstan Team), Juan Ayuso (UAE Team Emirates) and fresh from his win in the Amstel Gold Race, Britain's Tom Pidcock.

The riders set off under blue skies this morning all dreaming of holding their hands aloft at the top of the Mur de Huy, but who will have the legs today?

Read on to see how to catch the action from wherever you live.

Covering the British Isles, Belgium, France, Italy and Spain he has been riding and racing up hills and mountains for over 30 years now. He hosts talks, guides rides, has written columns for magazines and in 2020 released his first book of cycling routes, RIDE BRITAIN.
