Amanda Spratt is set to lead Tea, BikeExchange in La Fleche Wallonne, a race in which she has performed well in the past.

The Australian rider has been part of the most important riders in the Belgian race in the past, finishing in the fifth place in 2018, a result from which she wants to improve in 2021. The race will be 126.5 kilometres long and although it will include some changes, the final lap will remain the same and the two ascents to the Mur de Huy.

"I think we can take a lot of confidence into Flèche Wallonne after the team performance at Amstel Gold Race," said Spratt. "It's clear that the team has prepared really well for this block of racing and I think both Flèche and Liege will suit our strengths even better.

"That gives me a lot of motivation when we can ride together like this. I know the form is good and I think it's a race where we can use our strengths, be aggressive and create some good opportunities. My best result has been fifth here, it's such a brutal finish and you just have to be able to embrace the hellish pain for the final kilometre. There is no easy option. I'm ready to suffer and see what I can do."
