Pauline Ferrand Prévot, the world road race junior champion in 2010, has gone some way to fulfilling her potential by winning the 17th edition of the Women's Flèche Wallonne at the age of 22 years. The young French rider's impressive performance on the Mur de Huy (the Wall of Huy) helped her beat current UCI World Cup classification leader Lizzie Armistead (Boels) at the finishing line, as well as Longo Borghini (Hitec Products), who finished second last year. Marianne Vos, the five times winner of the event and team-mate of Ferrand Prévot, finished in 6th place.Read more Key moments
Huy is one of the main tourist centres in the Meuse Basin and boasts many natural treasures and can be proud of its rich heritage. In the town centre, colourful terraces, eye-catching shops, shaded parks and lively pedestrian areas allow visitors to enjoy a taste of the town's warmth.
Festive, cultural and sporty, Huy boasts a remarkable calendar of events. The Condroz-Huy Rally, the fair on 15th August, many festivals and exhibitions, as well as the end of year activities organised around the open air ice rink in the Grand-Place punctuate the year, just like the Flèche Wallonne, whose finish line was first established there in 1998, to the delight of thousands of cycling fans, but to the dread of the peloton, who will be obliged to suffer in order to overcome the 19% gradient of the renowned Mur de Huy.
