The Ardennes Classics was a major success for the team. With the addition of Amstel Gold Race and the first ever Liege-Bastogne-Liege to Fleche Wallonne, the week offered an exciting opportunity for the best riders in the world.

Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio showed what it takes to be a world-class athlete, returning from a hip fracture to complete each race in the top 10. Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig extended her lead in the WorldTour youth classification, a category she’s led since the first race in the series.

As a team passionate about rider development, it was wonderful to see a breakthrough performance by Marie Vilmann in Fleche Wallonne. Vilmann who only started cycling three years ago finished 12th on the Mur de Huy after having been in an attack for 12 kilometres before the tough climb.
