Am­s­tel Gold Race Nether­lands

Procycling - - Gallery - Im­age: Tim de Waele

En­rico Gas­parotto and Michael Val­gren prob­a­bly can't be­lieve their eyes as they crest the Cauberg climb and, with less than 2km to go in Am­s­tel Gold, see the chas­ing group fal­ter­ing. The Ital­ian, who won this race in 2012, and has in­ished in the top 10 on four other oc­ca­sions, at­tacked in the inal third of the Cauberg, and was fol­lowed by Val­gren. Gas­parotto sets the pace here but would ease the Dane into the lead with 1,500m to go, sit in to the in­ish and burst past to take the vic­tory.
