Amstel Gold Race organiser hopes for October date on revised calendar'I dare say we are going to be part of it' says race director Leo van Vliet
The 2020 Amstel Gold Race Ladies Edition will close out the three-round Ardennes Classics in Maastricht, in the Netherlands, on October 10. Normally the opener, this year's event has been re-position as part of the post-COVID-19 late-season Women's WorldTour calendar.
Organisers had initially announced the 23 teams invited to take the start line that included the eight WorldTeams: Canyon-SRAM, Ale BTC Ljubljana, CCC-Liv, Mitchelton-Scott, Team Sunweb, Trek-Segafredo, FDJ Nouvelle-Aquitaine Futuroscope and Movistar Team.
Seven second-tier Continental teams had secured automatic invitations based on their position in the UCI World Ranking. Those teams are Boels Dolmans, Parkhotel Valkenburg, Ceratizit-WNT, Valcar-Travel&Service, Bigla-Katusha, Lotto Soudal Ladies and Cogeas Mettler Look.
Organisers then extended wildcard invitations to eight Continental teams with CAMS-Tifosi earning a spot alongside Multum Accountants-LSK Ladies, Coltcini-Van Eyck Sport, Chevalmeire Cycling, Biehler Krush Pro, NXTG Racing, Astana Women's Team, and Hitec Products-Birk Sport.
However, the teams might change due to any public health restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic or travel restrictions between nations.
Kasia Niewiadoma (Canyon-SRAM) won last year's edition in a late-race solo attack over the Cauberg and beat chaser Annemiek van Vleuten (Mitchelton-Scott).
