- Julian Alaphilippe after his Fleche Wallonne victory: "I have been on the podium of this race twice, and if the first time three years ago I was surprised, the second time I was frustrated, but I also took that result as a confirmation. I have always kept believing and worked hard to land a victory in a classic. The team was extraordinary, protected and kept me in a good position, so I want to thank them for their help! Everything was perfect today and now I want to celebrate this fantastic performance."

- Davide Bramati (Quick-Step directeur sportif): "The ten climbs tackled before the final ascent of the Mur de Huy will make up for a tough race, harder than last year. The presence of Côte de la Vecquée and Côte de la Redoute means things will be more demanding in the first part of the course than at the past editions, when the action did not start until late in the race."

- Anna van der Breggen (Boels-Dolmans) won the 2017 Women's Fleche Wallonne and Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) won the 2017 men's race.

- Jackson Stewart, BMC directeur sportif: "The course has changed for La Flèche Wallonne with two new climbs in the first 100km so maybe it is harder from an elevation standpoint but I think it is too early to affect the finale. The circuit is exactly the same so the race is likely to come down to the final ascent of the Mur de Huy as it normally does."
