The 55th edition of Amstel Gold Race did not take place in 2020 after first being postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and then cancelled amid a second wave in the fall.
The Dutch one-day race, held in the south of the country, normally marks the beginning of Ardennes week, a trio of races that make up the main challenges of April's hilly classics season.
The race is primarily known for the Cauberg hill, one of over 30 named ascents on the route, which hosted the finish from 2003 to 2016 and has also hosted five Road World Championships.
Since 2017, the race has enjoyed a 'flatter' finish, with the Bemelerberg being the final climb, 7km from the finish.
Last year, Mathieu van der Poel (Corendon-Circus) took victory on his race debut, staging a remarkable comeback in the closing kilometres to chase down a minute gap almost single-handedly in the final 10 kilometres.
