Amstel Gold Race Ladies Edition has returned on April 18 in the Netherlands after being cancelled last year due to COVID-19. The event will once again launch the Ardennes Classics, which also includes La Flèche Wallonne on April 21 and Liège-Bastogne-Liège on April 25, both in Belgium.

Although the three races have returned to the proper spring slot on the calendar, and in their proper order, the Amstel Gold Race Ladies Edition has seen a marked route change. This year’s 116.3km race will not start in Maastricht as it did in 2019, and instead begins in Valkenburg. The opening lap is a bit shorter at 14.9km, followed by six laps of a 16.9-kilometre circuit with the finish in Berg en Terblijt.
