Gilbert’s Gold Victory

Amstel Gold - Philippe GilbertOmega Pharma-Lotto’s Philippe Gilbert has won the 46th edition of the Amstel Gold for his second consecutive victory. The Belgian clocked a time of 6:30:44 over the 260.4km course to beat out Joaquin Rodriguez of Katusha (+0:02) into second and Sky’s Simon Gerrans (+0:04) into third. 190 riders made the start in near perfect conditions to head out and tackle the infamous 32 climbs of the course but Gilbert (a surprise winner for many last year) looked determined from the start to take advantage of what is, virtually, home turf. Interviewed recently about this challenging one-day classic Gilbert commented: “I consider the Amstel Gold Race as one of the most beautiful classics, but also as one of the most dangerous. You should therefore always be very careful when riding it.”
