Ride the route of the Amstel Gold Race the day before the pro's, then kick back and join Maastricht locals to watch the world's best riders battle it out on the same course the next day.
A choice of six distances ensure the Amstel Gold sportive is accessible to all cyclists. Those taking on the full 240km route can be sure of a true test, with 3706m of ascent on famous climbs including the Geulhemmerberg, the Maasberg and the Cauberg.
Entry is via a lottery held throughout October before the event. With 15,000 places available the odds are good - but if you fail to get a place, or miss the lottery, it's still possible to take part by buying a business or hospitality entry. See the event website for full details.
