Fourth Fleche Wallonne
Alejandro Valverde has obtained in Huy what no other rider had achieved in almost eighty years of history: to win four times the Fleche Wallonne. The Spaniard has finished on the top of the legendary wall the great work of his fellows, who have perfectly controlled the race from the first kilometers.
The whole team have done their work following the script of their sports directors. The four-time champion has managed to wait for the perfect moment to release his attack and to win clearly ahead of the French Julian Alaphilippe and the Irish Daniel Martin.
Quotes: “It is Awesome. The team has been perfect. I was more nervous than ever because I knew that my feelings were better than ever. I knew I could win the race but it changes a lot. In the end I succeeded. Purito has started, then Daniel Martin and finally I have gone away calculating my gap to attack. The truth is that I have won four times. These are races where I go very well”.
