Hirschi rides away on Mur de Huy to win Fleche Wallone
Buoyed by brilliant performances and wins across the team since the season restart, a fantastic ride from team Sunweb at Fleche Wallonne today saw Marc Hirschi deliver a ferociously punchy ride up the steep slopes of the Mur de Huy to add another win to the team’s tally of 2020 victories.
Starting the day to set up Hirschi for the finish and be present in any dangerous attacks, the team rode perfectly throughout the race.
Taking control of the peloton in the early stages they were instrumental in bringing the breakaway back before positioning Hirschi at the front of the bunch.
On the stinging gradients of the Mur de Huy, Hirschi showed a level head by waiting for the perfect moment in the final 100 metres to launch his sprint and take a phenomenal win for the team; the 13th victory for Team Sunweb’s Men’s Program in 2020.
