Fleche Wallonne preview: Mur matters

April 21st, '14.  The second of the three hilly classics around this time of the year, Fleche Wallonne is traditionally regarded as the slightly smaller of the three; but that is not to say that it lacks prestige, for it carries that in spades.  The race has a pretty predictable feel to it - the winning move is virtually always on the final ascent of the infamous Mur de Huy - who will have the legs to make the winning move is far less certain.
