"I'm 6th in La Flèche Wallone... frankly, it's great," Lafay revealed almost in disbelief in a post-race interview.

He was solid and present when needed."

After victory last week at the Classic Grand Besançon Doubs, Lafay is enjoying some of the best form of his life at the moment and this sixth-placed finish, just three seconds behind Tadej Pogacar at La Fleche Wallone is just the latest sign that Lafay is a potential winner of any race he enters.
