Fleche Wallonne 2007

One second faster than 2004: such a superb performance allowed Davide Rebellin to win his second Fleche Wallonne on the Muur de Huy.

2'44" was the time to climb the 112 m of elevation of the final kilometre (VAM = 2458m/h).

Valverde, second at 5", was also able to improve his victorious performance of last year, but that was not sufficient to snatch a victory from the superiority of Rebellin today, who himself rode a tactically perfect race, while all of his rivals wasted precious energy trying to attack far from the finish, and with a peloton once again too big and too well organized in chasing down all the fugitives.
