Another Monday is here and our news from the world of cycling with it. So, what did you miss?
Second successive La Flèche Wallonne
Once again, Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck – Quick-Step) proved to be too good to be beaten by his opponents. When Fuglsang attacked with 500 metres to go, the Frenchman jumped on his wheel and went past to claim another spring Classic victory.
“Last year, I notched up my first big victory here, so being able to repeat that success gives me a lot of joy, but it tastes differently, because this edition was far more difficult. I am extremely proud of our team, who rode a perfect race, protected me from kilometer zero, chased down all the moves and always kept me in position. Being able to repay their hard work makes me very happy”, said the fourth rider in history to win Milano-Sanremo and Flèche Wallonne in the same season.

You know you're getting older when the day after a race you're eating breakfast with the staff and all the other riders are still sleeping 🤦♂️
