The 50th Amstel Gold Race is the first of three Ardennes classics and is held in Limburg, Netherlands.

The 258km course is a demanding one with repeated but short climbs which suit punchy riders like defending champion Philippe Gilbert (BMC) and Australian Simon Gerrans (Orica-GreenEDGE), who finished 3rd in 2014.
