Spain's Joaquim Rodriguez won the Fleche Wallone Classic on Wednesday.

Second behind the Katusha rider was Michael Albasini of Switzerland, with last year's winner Philippe Gilbert of Belgium in third.

Rodriguez broke away halfway up the final climb of the Mur de Huy for a solo win.

This is Spain's third victory in the Belgian classic and Rodríguez's first win after two second places in the Fleche Wallone.
