The 83rd La Flèche Wallonne (De Wijlse Pijl) over 195.5 kilometers finishes at the famous Mur De Huy. This year the last 77 kilometers takes place on a final lap of about 29 kilometers long. In total the 77 kilometers feature 9 climbs - three times the Ereffe - Cherave - Mur de Huy combination. It will definitely be an exiting race featuring last years winner Alaphilippe, five time winner Alejandro Valverde and for Daniel Martin it’s a coin toss between a crash or a spot on the podium.

The predictions for the La Flèche Wallonne can be found in Table 1 and are based on Zweeler game points (so you do not see e.g. probabilities). In the Zweeler game’s riders score points by ending up in the top 25 of a race. The first place is good for 120 points, the 25th spot yields just 1 point. Points scored as overall winner (separate prediction) are not included. Since it is a single race game more expected points indeed mean a higher probability of winning. Furthermore, keep in mind that:
- Our predictions are based on quantitative models and are presented in hard tables instead of stories.
- We are continuously improving our prediction models and some type of predictions may be better than others (especially the classics/single day race algorithms have room for improvement).
- Always combine these cycling predictions with other information.
- The predictions are generated for the riders on the final startlist that we downloaded the 23rd of April from Zweeler.
