The 53rd edition of the Amstel Gold Race will be held on Sunday the 15th of April, 2018. With narrow roads, dozens of hills and constant twisting and turning the race opens the trilogy of three Ardennes Classics. Founded in 1966 it is the only classic in the Netherlands, while their neighbours in Belgium have plenty. For years the Cauberg was the last climb, but this scenario was first altered last year in favour of a finale with Geulhemmerberg and Bemelerberg, which will be repeated in 2018. Good choice!

Philippe Gilbert won the last edition by besting Michal Kwiatkowski in a two-up sprint. Michael Albasini rounded out the podium.
