Gilbert sole leader for BMC at Amstel Gold Race

Philippe Gilbert and his BMC team will be watched men at this Sunday’s Amstel Gold Race, after a one-two at Brabantse Pijl earlier this week – with Ben Hermans leading home Gilbert - and a successful cobbled campaign. Three times a winner at the Dutch race, Gilbert is the undeniable leader but he will have the joined forces of Hermans, Greg Van Avermaet, Marcus Burghardt and Samuel Sánchez among the seven riders supporting him. Also in the team are Silvan Dillier, Damiano Caruso and the impressive youngster Dylan Teuns.
