Weather at the finish city of Namur at 1:20 PM, local time: 18C (65F), rain showers, with the wind from the northwest at 5 km/hr (3mph). The showers are forecast to continue through the afternoon.

The race: Here is a machine translation of the race organiser's report:

Mathieu Van Der Poel was the strongest on Wednesday to win the 62nd edition of the Grand Prix de Wallonie. The Dutchman used his explosiveness to beat Biniam Ghirmay and Gonzalo Serrano to the finish line. The quadruple winner of the cyclo-cross at the Citadelle thus won his first victory in the Grand Prix de Wallonie.

The event, which started from Blégny at 12:30 p.m., was led by a five-man breakaway: Johan Meens (Bingoal-Pauwels Sauces-WB), Martin Bugge Urianstad (Uno-X Pro Cycling), Maximilien Juillard (Go Sport-Roubaix Lille Métropole), Abram Stockman (Saris Rouvy Sauerland) and Gianni Marchand (Tarteletto-Isorex). The fugitives did not count more than 3 minutes in advance. The race settled down in the approach to La Tienne aux Pierres.

Ewen Costiou came out of the peloton and made contact with the breakaways, before giving them the slip. At the cost of a good resistance, the trainee at Arkéa-Samsic was the last to resist the return of the peloton, which swallowed him 4 kilometers from the goal. The ascent of the Route Merveilleuse skimmed the peloton and despite an attempt by Dylan Teuns and Gonzalo Serrano, it was Mathieu Van Der Poel (Alpecin-Deceuninck) who raised his arms.

Mathieu Van Der Poel: “I knew the Namur cyclo cross but I have never ridden here on the road. I didn't feel very well. I wanted to lead out for Jasper, but he wasn't feeling great either. I still had the strength to go to the line. It's a great win for the team. It's a finish that suits me well, but I didn't feel good with the rain all day, the team worked a lot today, we had two contenders for victory. I am happy to win. It was still very tough with the weather and the hills at the end. There was a very fast tempo until the finish. Normally, the strongest wins on this kind of finish."
