Anna van der Breggen wins Fleche Wallonne for the fifth time.

In a strong race where only the top favorits started the final climb of the Mure de Huy Anna van der Breggen consolidated the pace together with Annika Langvad and Annemiek van Vleuten. Van Vleuten was the only rider who could stay in the wheel of Van der Breggen and finished 1 second behind the worldchampion. Annika Langvad rewarded herself after a strong Amstel Gold Race and Fleche Wallonne with a third place. "It was an amazing day for the team. It was so cool to see Anna take the win. I could see that she had really good legs and that she got this one. I hanged in there to try and take second place. In the end my legs just died with 50meters to go, however very happy with third", says Annika Langvad.
