Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.
When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.
Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.

Alternative Amstel Gold Race concept route, 3times cauberg and finish in Gulp Netherlands. I thought about how to make the AGR a much more open race with a more interesting ending. The race seemed to be decided when taking down the Cauberg for the third time and this idea shows how to step away from the concept of a finish that 'has' to be in Valkenburg and shows opportunity for another stage town.
What I like is that its a very interesting and challenging parcour in my opinion and a very open ending of the race after a series of punch climbs with the Gulpenerberg, Plettenberg and Eijserweg and finish after a 7k decent towards the finish line. Let me know of what you think and why you would like this concept to be adapted by The Amstel Gold Race any time soon in the comments down below.
