This year will be the 51st edition of the Amstel Gold Race and riders will be faced with 248km and 34 noted climbs. While the climbs are not all that long (only 2 are longer than 3km), they are short, steep and once they start there is almost no respite between them.
The Cauberg is considered to be the most famed climb of the race and riders will race to the top no less than 4 times. The final time up the Cauberg comes in the final 3km of the race and is often the stage for the race defining moment.
Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka will start with a strong team, ready to challenge for a top result at the hilly Dutch classic. Edvald Boasson Hagen will lead the team with Kristian Sbaragli, Serge Pauwels, Nathan Haas, Omar Fraile, Jaco Venter, Natnael Berhane and Youcef Reguigui completing our roster.
