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.
