Liberty Seguros' German strongman, Jorg Jaksche, says he's keen to take victory number one for 2005 at Amstel Gold Race on Sunday.

The former CSC rider took the mountains classification at Criterium International in late March, and is looking to secure victory in Sunday's race against the likes of Boogerd, Rebellin and Di Luca, riders he sees as offering the greatest challenge.

After bad luck in recent times and some near misses, Jaksche believes this difficult race is within his grasp; and although he prefers Liege-Bastogne-Liege, he'll be gunning for a much-needed win for himself and the team on those narrow roads come Sunday afternoon.
