Erik Dekker. That was the last thuisrenner that the Amstel Gold Race. The netherlands waiting since 2001 to a new winner from their own country, no surprise, therefore, that all hope today Mathieu van der Poel was. The world champion cyclo-cross has stood as the top favourites at the start. To the others around him about 35 slopes and more than 250 km from the victory.
A long course, but one under beautiful conditions. A group of eleven riders was allowed under the spring sun looking for easter eggs in the Dutch province of Limburg. This is the so-Verwilst, Van Asbroeck, Sprengers and Baugnies four Belgians. Their lead was never about eight minutes.
In the background of the long wait. The favorites turfden lustig the number of slopes to Mathieu van der Poel there himself suddenly enough of got. True to the nature of the beast attracted the Dutch champion at 44 kilometers from the finish in the attack. No one bothered to join him in his car.
