Adam Yates says he's 'high in confidence' as he aims for a first Ardennes podium at La Flèche Wallonne on Wednesday.

The Briton has only ridden Flèche twice before in his career, with a highest finishing position of 97th. The steep gradients of the finishing climb of the Mur de Huy (which this year is taken on three times) should suit Yates' punchy climbing style, however he's never been able to be present in the finale of the mid-week Ardennes Classic.
