Spaniard Alejandro Valverde timed his attack to perfection on the gruelling Mur de Huy to win the Fleche Wallonne race for the second time on Wednesday.

The 34-year-old Movistar team leader, who also won this race in 2006, passed Ireland’s Daniel Martin and Michal Kwiatkowski of Poland in the final 200 metres of the 199.5km ride to claim his fourth victory in an Ardennes Classic.

Garmin’s Martin finished 3sec down with Omega-Pharma’s Kwiatkowski another second further back.

Last year’s winner Dani Moreno could finish only ninth with Amstel Gold Race winner Philippe Gilbert 10th.
