The Walloon Arrow has become prey for the Swiss revelation Marc Hirschi. As expected, the Wall of Huy became the executioner and Hirschi knocked Frenchman Benoît Cosnefroy and Canadian Michael Woods off the wheel.
De Waalse Pijl in a nutshell
- Key moment: Mauri Vansevenant surprises at 21 by being the last to survive the flight of the day. The neo-pro of Deceuninck-Quick Step drives into Huy with a slight lead, but then tumbles straight into the canal. He scrambles back on his bike at lightning speed, but that fall has lost the last glimmer of hope for a stunt.
- Winner of the day: Marc Hirschi was only at the start of the Flèche Wallonne for the first time, but after his impressive Tour and World Championship he was immediately bombarded to the favorites. Although he made his debut, he arranged his final climb better than experienced Wall Climbers like Woods and Kwiatkowski.
- Statistics: Only 1 rider was younger than Marc Hirschi since World War II when he won the Flèche Wallonne: Eddy Merckx was a few months younger in 1967 than Hirschi is now.
