No new victory for Julian Alaphilippe on the Fleche Wallone. The world champion, badly placed in the wheel of a Tadej Pogacar in distress at the time of the final sprint, could not do better than a 4th place at the wall of Huy and confirms that he is not in the form of his life. The Belgian Dylan Teuns succeeds him on the list of winners of the race, which Alejandro Valverde almost won at the height of his 78 years.
La France du vélo will console itself with the presence of four French people in the top ten. In addition to Julian Alaphilippe, Molard, Barguil and Vuillermoz complete the top 10. Tadej Pogacar, who we briefly thought was able to climb the peloton with his ass screwed in the saddle, finally finished 12th. Probably a DRS issue.
