Flèche Wallonne’18: Photo And Video Gallery From Huy!
PeloPics: Alejandro Valverde was the man to beat in Wednesday's Flèche Wallonne. The man from Murcia was looking for his sixth win which would be his fifth Flèche in a row. The Quick-Step Floors had a different idea and put Julian Alaphilippe in the perfect position to take the win and upset the Movistar apple cart.


Cor Vos had his team of photographers roadside in Wallonia for the best shots, for the full picture we've mixed in the race video shorts.... Enjoy!
