After leaving from the Markt in Maastricht the race does kick into gearon the Slingerberg at kilometre 9.1. From the first climb onwards it’s vintage Amstel Gold Race, with lots of twists and turns while cycling on narrow country roads. On it goes to Adsteegberg (at kilometre 13.8), Lange Raarberg (at kilometre 22), Bergseweg (at kilometre 37.7), Eyserbosweg (at kilometre 45.3), Fromberg (at kilometre 49.) and Keutenberg (at kilometre 53.6). No Stelvio’s, but short and often sharp climbs that are emblematic of the race.
Following the steep Keutenberg (max grade of 22%, riders face the famous Cauberg for the first time. The climb is tackled four times in total today. It’s a tough 800 metre with an average gradient of 6.5% and a steepest section of 12.8%.
1.6 kilometre after the Cauberg the riders pass the finish line and the circuit begins. Three rounds of 18.5 kilometres to go. All with three climbs.
The first hill is Geulhemberg – 1.2 kilometre at 4.6% and with a steepest sector of 8% -, shortly followed by Bemelerberg – 2.1 kilometres at 3.6%. The finish line is 7.8 kilometres from the top.
A false flat and a drop takes the riders in 5.4 kilometres to the foot of the Cauberg. The steepest ramp is 300 metres up the hill, which is a perfect place to strike. As said, the finish line is 1.6 kilometres after the top of Cauberg.
