2010 Fleche Wallonne

After an exciting last 30km of the Amstel Gold race last Sunday we turn to Fleche Wallonne on Wednesday which should also throw up an exciting last 30km given the riders will have to climb the Mur de Huy twice at the end of the race. Alberto Contador makes a surprising appearance at the race and given his explosive climbing abilities on the short, steep stuff it’s understandable why the bookmakers have him a close second favourite behind Alejandro Valverde. It’s well known that Philippe Gilbert is focusing on Sunday’s Liege-Bastogne-Liege but if he is in the mix at the foot of the final climb the temptation will be too much to resist giving all for victory at Fleche Wallonne.

The Schlecks look menacing at Amstel Gold but fizzled out at the end, again Andy Schleck may be looking more at Liege a few days later. If Kolobnev can work out the best time to attack he could be a threat but the steep climb will work against him. Similarly, Sergei Ivanov showed he can climb the steep stuff at rapid speed but also needs to get this timing right.
