As historical and attached to traditions as they are, the Ardennes classics still manage to bring novelty.
The city of Ans was used to welcoming the champions at the end of La Doyenne, in 2019 it will host the start of the 83rd edition of the Flèche Wallonne, a 195.5-km challenge leading to the legendary battle up the Mur de Huy. The stars lining up to succeed Julian Alaphilippe will first tackle the Côte des Forges, a classic from Liège-Bastogne-Liège, before entering the final circuit. They will then face three ascents of the Côte d’Ereffe, the Côte de Cherave and the Mur de Huy.
As well as unveiling the courses of the Ardennes classics, the organisers revealed the team selection for the upcoming edition of La Flèche Wallonne. The following squads have been selected to compete alongside the 18 WorldTour outfits:
