Fleche Wallone Preview, Moolman-Pasio comments
Cervélo Bigla Pro Cycling Team will take confidence from a good performance in Emakumeen Bira into Wednesday’s Fleche Wallonne. The iconic race forms part of the UCI Women’s WorldTour and will be another spectator friendly event as it finishes up the steep Mur de Huy.
Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio has placed in the top five in the last four editions of the race. She’s had a tough start to the season but third place on the overall classification in Emakumeen Bira has helped her confidence along.
“I’ve known all along that I am on good form,” Moolman-Pasio said. “My numbers are good, I see it every day in training so that’s been the most frustrating part. You get to a race and something happens that stops you from building that confidence, it’s just great to get that reassurance that the numbers don’t lie and the legs are coming good.”
Fleche Wallonne is a favourite event of hers. “Every Fleche Wallonne I’ve started I have finished in the top five, minus my first one where I crashed 15 kilometres from the finish. It definitely is a race that I love and I am looking forward to Wednesday.”
