Your Experience

The 2023 Amstel Gold Race Sportive takes place on Saturday 15 April followed by the Amstel Gold Race on Sunday 16 April 2023. This a very popular Sportive with entries sold out every year.

Our weekend package is for 2 or 3 nights and it allows you to cycle the Tour version of the Amstel Gold Race on Saturday and you can enjoy watching the Pro Men and Women on Sunday. You get guaranteed participation in the Sportive and do not have to enter the draw.

The southern Dutch province is a truly beautiful area with characteristics that are not usually associated with Holland like a hilly landscape, a great restaurant and café culture and great food and drink. The local delicacy of ‘Vlaai’ is a pie filled with cherries, strawberries or plumbs that’s popular throughout the Netherlands. You just have to try some when you’re there and it is an excellent option for a coffee stop.

Location

The Amstel Gold Race has been taking place in the southernmost province of the Netherlands Limburg every year since 1966. Every year ‘De Markt’ in Maastricht is the start venue of the Amstel Gold Race with the finish in nearby Berg en Terblijt (Valkenburg).

The Amstel Gold Race is the only Dutch classic in the Netherlands. The day before the professionals thousands of Sportive riders tackle memorable hills such as the Keutenberg; the Camerig, the Bemelerberg and the Cauberg as the finale.

In 2022 Amstel Gold and Roubaix switched dates but usually the Amstel Gold Race heralds the start of the ‘Ardennes Classics’ with Fleche Wallonne following on Wednesday and Liege Bastogne Liege the following Sunday.

How to get there

Maastricht and nearby Valkenburg are situated in the Dutch province of Zuid-Limburg, in the southernmost tip of the Netherlands. The area is surrounded by Belgium and Germany and it is not too far from the French border either. Cities like Liège, Aachen, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Brussels are just a short distance away.
