The Fleche Wallone, or “Arrow Valley”, with its three ascents of the famous Wall of Huy, is the most beautiful race in the world that does not take part on a weekend. The mur de Huy is a challenge that puts a strain on even the best athletes in the world. The wall is 800m long with a maximum grade of 22% and is the springboard to victory for the one athlete with the best fitness at the moment.
Race elevation and heart rate profile highlighted by three times up the Mur de Huy.
