Valverde wins second Fleche Wallonne Classic
Sales of new US homes plunge 14.5 percent in March
Huy (Belgium) (AFP) - Spaniard Alejandro Valverde timed his attack to perfection on the gruelling Mur de Huy to win the Fleche Wallonne race for the second time on Wednesday. The 34-year-old Movistar team leader, who also won this race in 2006, passed Ireland's Daniel Martin and Michal Kwiatkowski of Poland in the final 200 metres of the 199.5km ride to claim his fourth victory in an Ardennes Classics. Garmin's Martin finished 3sec down with Omega-Pharma's Kwiatkowski another second further back. Last year's winner Dani Moreno could finish only ninth with Amstel Gold Race winner Philippe Gilbert 10th.
U.S., euro zone activity up; China decline slows
WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of Americans buying new homes plummeted in March to the slowest pace in eight months, a sign that real estate's spring buying season is off to a weak start.
By Rodrigo Campos and Jonathan Cable NEW YORK/LONDON (Reuters) - The U.S. manufacturing sector expanded in April and the euro zone private sector started the second quarter on its strongest footing since 2011, while the pace of decline in Chinese factory activity slowed, surveys showed on Wednesday. Financial data firm Markit said its preliminary or "flash" U.S. Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index dipped to 55.4 in April from 55.5 in March. Economists polled by Reuters expected a reading of 56.0. Earlier on Wednesday, data showed China's HSBC/Markit flash PMI for April rose to 48.3 from March's final reading of 48.0, but was still below the 50 line separating expansion from contraction.
