Crying Van der Poel: "Can't believe it"
Immediately after the finish Mathieu van der Poel is overwhelmed by emotions. "Unbelievable, I really can't comprehend this," he stammers at the NOS. At the start of the final kilometer, the Dutch champion still seemed hopeless, but Alaphilippe and Fuglsang started looking at each other too much and were surprised.

Amstel Gold Race · 4 minutes ago

Rarely have we seen such a bizarre denouement in the final of a classic! Van der Poel benefits and is the first Dutch winner of the Limburg classic since Erik Dekker in 2001.

Mathieu van der Poel wins the Amstel Gold Race!

Amstel Gold Race · 7 minutes ago

Van der Poel and Mollema are also coming back! What a denouement!

Amstel Gold Race · 7 minutes ago

Last kilometer!

Alaphilippe and Fuglsang have slowed down so much that Kwiatkowski is coming back!

Amstel Gold Race · 9 minutes ago

Another 2 km - Schachmann joins Kwiatkowski and Trentin. Mollema and Van der Poel are also not far behind. However, it will be a struggle for no more than third place.

Amstel Gold Race · 10 minutes ago

3 km to go - The lead from Alaphilippe and Fuglsang seems to be reassuring with 40 seconds over Kwiatkowski and Trentin. Fuglsang is only trying to get away, but that does not let his French co-fighter happen.

Amstel Gold Race · 12 minutes ago

Another 4 km - Alaphilippe and Fuglsang start looking at each other. This offers other riders the opportunity to come back. Van der Poel joins Mollema's group in the background.

Amstel Gold Race · 15 minutes ago

6 km to go - Van der Poel does not accept the situation and attacks the peloton. The difference with the front runners, however, seems far too large to bring this all-or-not attempt to a successful conclusion.

Amstel Gold Race · 18 minutes ago

8 km to go - Trentin joins Kwiatkowski again, but the Italian and the Pole still have to close a gap of twenty seconds on Alaphilippe and Fuglsang. Mollema and Clarke follow at around 45 counts.

Amstel Gold Race · 22 minutes ago

12 km to go - Kwiatkowski has left Trentin and is now alone in the pursuit of Alaphilippe and Fuglsang. Together with Clarke, Mollema also tries to get a little closer.

Amstel Gold Race · 27 minutes ago

Another 16 km - The cooperation in the peloton is completely gone. Mollema is now trying to make the leap to the leading group, although that will be difficult. Alaphilippe and Fuglsang have crossed the finish line and are now starting the last 16-kilometer local loop.

Amstel Gold Race · 29 minutes ago

Another 17 km - Alaphilippe and Fuglsang have begun the final climb of the Cauberg and walk further away on pursuers Kwiatkowski and Trentin. The difference has increased to more than twenty seconds. In the peloton the Belgian Vanendert tries to ride away.

Amstel Gold Race · 33 minutes ago

19 km to go - Just like Van der Poel, Mollema, Gesink and Van Baarle are also in the peloton, which is about 35 men. However, there is a good chance that they will no longer see leaders Alaphilippe and Fuglsang today. Trentin and Kwiatkowski are approaching the Frenchman and the Dane. That difference is only ten seconds.

Amstel Gold Race · 38 minutes ago

Another 25 km - Woods sinks back into the peloton, leaving only four men in the attack. Alaphilippe (Deceuninck - Quick Step) and Fuglsang (Astana) have a 24-second lead over Trentin (Mitchelton-Scott) and Kwiatkowski (Sky). The large group, including the Dutch, follows in less than a minute and seems almost beaten.

Amstel Gold Race · one hour ago

28 km to go - Alaphilippe and Fuglsang work very well together and have a 20-second lead over Kwiatkowski and Trentin, who have left Woods behind. The peloton with Van der Poel follows 45 seconds.

# agr2019 KM31,2 The attack by Van der Poel did not last long. maybe the wrong moment? We will only know at the finish line. Now past the Fromberg, @jakob_fuglsang and @alafpolak are driving forward. 🚴‍♂️

Another 31 km - The peloton with Van der Poel follows 45 seconds from Alaphilippe and Fuglsang.

Amstel Gold Race · one hour ago

35 km to go - Did Van der Poel fade his gun too soon? He did not get along with Woods, Trentin and Kwiatkowski, who are chasing after Alaphilippe and Fuglsang. It is certainly not the day of Sagan, who has to release from the pack.

Amstel Gold Race · one hour ago

36 km to go - Another favorite that can be lured out of the tent. The Frenchman Alaphilippe runs away on the Eyserbosweg and gets the company of the Danish Fuglsang.

Amstel Gold Race · one hour ago

38 km to go - The peloton does not want to give Van der Poel room and grabs the Dutchman and his Spanish co-refugee Izagirre again. While the early flight group has also been included, the course is completely open again with less than 40 kilometers to go.

Amstel Gold Race · one hour ago

Another 41 km - Van der Poel wants help from Izagirre, but the Spaniard is mostly in the Dutchman's wheel. The two already have a lead of forty seconds.

Amstel Gold Race · one hour ago

Another 43 km - Mathieu van der Poel is already opting for the attack! At the Gulpenerberg, the Dutch champion leaves the pack. He gets the Spaniard Gorka Izagirre from Astana with him.

Amstel Gold Race · one hour ago

Another 45 km - And then there were eight! The Belgian Verwilst also releases from the leading group, who feels the hot breath of the peloton in the neck. The margin is only slightly above the minute.

Another 53 km - In the front, the adventure is over for Minnaard, who has to let the rest go. Nine frontrunners remain, with Van der Lijke being the only Dutchman. They must also start worrying, because the peloton is approaching to more than a minute and a half.

Jakobsen second in final stage Turkey
Fabio Jakobsen sprint to second place in the final stage of the Tour of Turkey. The final stage is won in Istanbul by the Australian Caleb Ewan, who stays ahead of the Dutchman in the final kilometer. The overall victory goes to the Austrian Felix Grossschartner, who won the only mountain stage yesterday.

Amstel Gold Race · 2 hours ago

Still 61 km - Where the decision was made on the Cauberg for women, today it is no longer the case for men. After the last climb it is still 19 kilometers to the finish. Calf eaters the Eyserbosweg (37.5 km) and the Keutenberg (29.1 km) are also not very close to the finish line. After the third passage in Vilt, a final loop of 16 kilometers follows for the riders.

Amstel Gold Race · 2 hours ago

67 km to go - The lead of the ten refugees is now rapidly declining: only 2 minutes and 45 seconds. This is mainly due to the work of Astana, which seems to want to set the course for leaders Jakob Fuglsang and Alexey Lutsenko. The penultimate climb of the Cauberg has now been completed by the riders.

Amstel Gold Race women · 2 hours ago

Sitting on the asphalt, Van Vleuten looked back at second place in the Gold Race.

'Losing that way, I can make peace with that. She was better on the Cauberg, "says Annemiek van Vleuten when she can talk again. "It was a beautiful course." # agrwomen19

Another 86 km - In South Limburg it is wonderful weather to watch the race with your knitwear on your lap. The leading group now consists of only ten people. Paolo Simion gets a cramp and has to let the rest go.

Amstel Gold Race · 2 hours ago

Another 100 km - For the men it takes a while before the finish looms up. Van der Lijke and Minnaard are still part of the eleven-strong group, although the lead is reduced to less than six minutes.

Amstel Gold Race women · 2 hours ago

Van Vleuten almost fought his way to the wheel of Niewiadoma, but did not pass the Polish.

Van Vleuten had 'flashback' in Gold Race
Immediately after the finish Annemiek van Vleuten is able to tell her story. "I did have a flashback, I think a lot of people in front of the TV," she refers to the final of La Course last year, when she was able to figure out Anna van der Breggen in the final meters. This time it just didn't work out. "Niewiadoma was just a bit stronger on the Cauberg and has rightly won", Van Vleuten admits at the NOS . "But it was a great course."

Amstel Gold Race women · 3 hours ago

FINISH. Van Vleuten just can't make it! It is a few meters from the Polish Niewiadoma. Vos finishes third and is therefore the second Dutch on the podium.

Amstel Gold Race women · 3 hours ago

Last kilometer!

Niewiadoma is the first to emerge. Can Van Vleuten still trace her in the last flat part?

Amstel Gold Race women · 3 hours ago

2 km further - On the Cauberg Van Vleuten and Vos try to get away, but the Polish Niewiadoma is just ahead of it.

Amstel Gold Race women · 3 hours ago

Another 5 km - Spratt, Moolman and Longo Borghini drive with a small lead towards the last climb of the Cauberg. Van Vleuten, Van der Breggen and Vos have all Dutch favorites in the chasing group.

Amstel Gold Race women · 3 hours ago

8 km to go - The front runners are almost caught in, while the favorites hold each other in a stranglehold. Van Vleuten tries to drive away on the Bemelerberg, but gets no space.

Amstel Gold Race women · 3 hours ago

Another 19 km - On the Cauberg, the Polish Niewiadoma runs to the leaders, Hall, Spratt and Longo Borghini. The following group, with Van der Breggen, Van Vleuten, Vos and Vollering, follows sixteen seconds. Fire fell behind due to a fall. Blaak, the winner of last year, drives an unfortunate race and is missing in the front.

Amstel Gold Race · 3 hours ago

140 km to go - In the men's race the situation has been stuck for a while. The Dutch Van der Lijke (Roompot-Charles) and Minnaard (Wanty) have together with Baugnies (Wanty), Sprengers, Verwilst (Topsport Vlaanderen), Bole (Bahrain-Merida), Bernard (Trek-Segafredo), Meisen (Corendon-Circus) ), Schär (CCC), Simion (Bardiani-CSF) and Van Asbroeck (Israel Cycling Academy) a lead of more than seven minutes.

Amstel Gold Race women · 3 hours ago

Another 26 km - Hall, Spratt and Longo Borghini have made a small gap with the rest. In the chasing group, Vos does a lot of work, with which she seems to be forfeiting her own chances.

Amstel Gold Race women · 4 hours ago

35 km to go - A flight attempt by the British Deignan is thwarted. The group has meanwhile seriously crumbled. In contrast to the men, the finish lies with the women just after the top of the Cauberg.

Amstel Gold Race · 4 hours ago

Still 165 km - The men's leading group comes with the Schweibergerweg to the twelfth of 35 climbs. The eleven men in front, with Minnaard and Van der Lijke, have a considerable margin of more than eight minutes.

Amstel Gold Race women · 4 hours ago

50 km to go - A fusion at the front, where a chasing group joins the front runners. Almost all Dutch contenders are present with Marianne Vos, Anna van der Breggen, Annemiek van Vleuten, Lucinda Brand and Ellen van Dijk. The winner will probably come from this group of almost seventeen riders.

Amstel Gold Race · 4 hours ago

Another 172 km - Van der Poel is immediately one of the top favorites in his debut in the Amstel Gold Race. He already made an impression this spring with a win in the Brabantse Pijl, Dwars door Vlaanderen and a fourth place in the Tour of Flanders.

Amstel Gold Race women · 5 hours ago

70 km to go - The leading group is thinning from seven riders to five. The pace is going too fast for Danique Braam, which means that Nina Buijsman is now the only Dutch front. She has the company of the Colombian Martinez, the Belgian Vandenbulcke, the Australian Malseed and the German Hammes.

Amstel Gold Race · 5 hours ago

Still 192 km - Van der Poel can hide quietly in the peloton in the opening phase of the race. With the German Marcel Meisen, the Dutch champion has at least one man in the leading group, who may be able to serve him later today.

Van der Poel is still at the very end of the pack. Astana does the headwork, with a man from Sunweb. # AGR19

"These slopes are less favorable to me than those in Flanders. But maybe it is not so bad. After such a long race, the strongest riders will arrive at the front anyway. Then it will come down to pure climbing. If you have 4,000 meters, you can almost speak of a climbing course ", said Mathieu van der Poel before the start. "I hope to last a long time today, as I did in every classic this spring. I have to survive the first split and then a lot can happen."
