Amstel Gold Race

Amstel Gold Race 2015

Lovely weather, a beautiful environment, happy people – all the ingredients you need for a successful race. And guess what? The 2015 edition of the Amstel Gold Race met all these requirements.

Curves, climbs, nature, a cheering audience … All present!

Not only the Dutch, Belgian and German were there, we even spoke to Spanish, Italian and (I kid you not!) Australian riders who praise this race.

Those who’ve been there before know there’s a tour edition on Saturday and a pro race on Sunday. The tour edition covers multiple distances, making the race accessible for every cyclist: from 60 all the way up to 240 kilometers and pretty much everything in between. This way, both young & old, super sportive or just in it for the fun – all can enjoy a nice race!

And from what we saw and heard over at the finish line they sure did! So many people, so much fun. A beer or two may have added to this sheer joy, it being the Amstel Gold Race we expected nothing less…

As always, a picture speaks a thousand words – watch and enjoy!

The tour edition has an early start if you’re up for it: at 6.30 a.m. sharp the first riders cross the start. Luckily, you can start as late as 11.00 if you want.

Good times after the race. And beer, a lot of beer.

And of course, there’s the pros. They did a pretty good job too ;-), with all favorites joining each other in the final sprint. There can be only one winner, and Polish rider Michal Kwiatkowski managed to cross the finish line first.
