The WorldTour riders will line up for the 49th edition of the Amstel Gold Race on Sunday in the Netherlands. The first of the so-called Classic features 251km with 34 climbs in the Limburg hills of southern Holland, including four trips up the famous Cauberg.

In 2013, Roman Kreuziger outsmarted his competition with a late attack and took the win.
