Ten kilometres from the end, Vollering went to shake the tree himself. "Anna van der Breggen had indicated to me to attack already on the Côte de Cherave, but I didn't have enough self-confidence to go full on already. Consequently, I did increase the pace so I could hopefully hurt the others already. At the Mur de Huy I accelerated as agreed already at the bottom. I didn't realise I was creating a gap right away either."
After which Vollering held on and triumphed atop the Mur de Huy. "This is a fantastic feeling. This climb is so tough, I wanted to triumph here one day. I still can't believe I finally managed to win here. The form is really good, so of course I now hope to compete for the win in Liège-Bastogne-Liège as well."
