"La Fleche Wallone, the famous Mur de Huy, a climb that you can’t truly appreciate till you have raced up it. The streets of this narrow road are lined with thousands of people screaming “ Venga, Venga”, “Allez, Allez” and then randomly “bidon?” Really? I’m out of the saddle grovelling up the climb and you want my bidon? Ah yes, the crazy Belgium fans really make the atmosphere out there, and honestly encourage you to push that little harder."
"“The lead in to the Mur de Huy was perfect with Shara, Spratty and Tiff on the front,” said Johansson. “I was feeling confident because I could start the climb at my pace and dictate how fast we’d go. At 150 metres to go I could feel riders behind me breathing down my neck. I knew I couldn’t wait any longer and tried to go faster. Vos kicked off the sprint and I tried to stand up to go with her and the others, but I was parked. Today there were four others who were better than me.”"
