Davide Rebellin will aim for another Classic win in Sunday's Dutch one-day race, Amstel Gold. Team Diquigiovanni's Italian won all three Ardennes Classics – Amstel Gold, Flèche Wallonne and Liège-Bastogne-Liège – in 2004.

"In one of the three I will try to get an important result," the 37-year-old told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Rebellin showed top form earlier this year with two stage wins in the Vuelta a Andalucía and a second place in the GP Lugano. His last race was at the Settimana Lombarda, March 31 to April 5, where he finished third overall. Yesterday he completed a period of training in Marbella, Spain, with teammate Luis Angel Maté.

"I am good, even if I have not raced since Settimana Lombarda. Maybe I will pay for it in Amstel, we will see. But I have good form."

The Italian team will also feature Michele Scarponi, winner of the Tirreno-Adriatico. He won the stage race over Stefano Garzelli (Acqua & Sapone-Caffè Mokambo) and Andreas Klöden (Astana).
