The Amstel Gold Race has issued the last three wild-card invitations to Professional Continental teams Landbouwkrediet, Barloworld and Slipstream Chipotle. They will join the 18 ProTour teams in the Dutch Classic on April 20, as well as Topsport Vlaanderen and Skil-Shimano, which were named last month.

The race will thus feature 23 teams and 184 riders. The ProTour rules allow up to 25 teams to start in Amstel, but race director Leo Van Vliet limited it to 23 for security reasons.
