2020 Flèche Wallonne to take the high road with a start in Herve
April 26 th 2019 - 12:00
Hours after the peloton clambered to the summit of the Mur de Huy on Wednesday, the Province of Liège is already focused on the next edition of the Flèche Wallonne. In 2020, Herve will host the start of the male version of the Ardennes classic, which saw Julian Alaphilippe take the crown for the second time running this year. It will be the first time that this town of 18,000 inhabitants, perched on a plateau between Liège and Verviers, hosts the start or finish of a WorldTour race.
The partnership between the Province of Liège and A.S.O. for the Ardennes classics is set to last until 2024. Both the men and women's versions of the Flèche Wallonne will continue to be decided at the top of the famous Mur as part of the deal with Huy.
In keeping with tradition, the men's race will continue to start from a different Walloon town or municipality every year. After Ans in 2019, it will be Herve's turn to host the start of the Flèche Wallonne in 2020.
