Marianne Vos won the women's Flèche Wallonne a fourth time today in Huy, Belgium. The Dutchwoman of team Nederland Bloeit shot ahead on the 1300-metre long Mur de Huy climb, leaving behind Swede Emma Johansson by three seconds. German Judith Arndt in third and Brit Nicole Cooke took fifth.

"It's short but really hard, a few seconds is only a few metres in this race," said Vos. "On some terrain I can't win, but I try to be as rounded as rider as I can be."
