It’s time for the riders that have been targeting the Ardennes Classics to step into the limelight, with the Amstel Gold Race back as the opening round this year after it’s rescheduling and then late cancellation in 2020.

The race will look a little different to normal this year, confined to seven laps of a hilly circuit where there is little chance for recovery and even less hope than usual for the flat-loving sprinters. It’s time to turn the spotlight on the riders that like their races hard and hilly in our riders to watch in the sixth round of the Women’s WorldTour series.
