World champion Anna van der Breggen showed himself for the fifth year in a row the best in the Flèche wallonne for women. The Dutch took it for her compatriot Annemiek van Vleuten and the Danish Langvad. With Fox and Vollering on places four and five occupied the Netherlands, four of the five places in the top five.
The way in which the Dutch won, it was an exact copy of here four prior victories. The decision fell as always on the Wall of Huy, where Kasia Niewiadoma, the winner last Sunday of the Amstel Gold Race, the first accelerated. But the Dutch women took quickly to the command. Van der Breggen, on Sunday-from the wheels driven on the last climb of the Cauberg, cannot tolerate any opposition and sped to its fifth victory in the Flèche wallonne, especially Van der Vleuten and her Danish Boels-Dolmans-while his teammate Langvad. Julie Van de Velde (Lotto-Soudal) was the best fellow on a fourteenth place.
