Dylan Teuns secured his first-ever Classics victory today at La Flèche Wallonne 2022, as the Bahrain-Victorious proved too powerful for the rest of the peloton heading up the final climb of the Mur de Huy. 

Coming into the final turn, Teuns had Alejandro Valverde - competing in his final La Flèche Wallonne - right on his back wheel. The Belgian managed to keep in front with more consistent speed though, leaving Valverde to settle for second place.
