    The Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2017 race route on Google Maps/Google Earth: the 103rd 'Doyenne'!

    The Liège-Bastogne-Liège 2017 race route on Google Maps/Google Earth: the 103rd 'Doyenne'!In 1892 the very first edition of Liège-Bastogne-Liège took place, which logically gives this race the nickname La Doyenne (the oldest one). That was 125 years ago and this year we'll see the 103rd edition of the Belgian classic which will take place between Liège, Bastogne and ... Ans (finish location of the race since 1992).

    The Amstel Gold Race 2017 race route on Google Maps/Google Earth and the time- and route scheduleThis Sunday, the only Dutch classic, the Amstel Gold Race, which will take place between Maastricht and ... the Rijksweg in Vilt. Indeed, since 2013, the finish is no longer on top of the Cauberg in Valkenburg but at the same location as where the finish of the races of the 2012 World Championships took place.

    The race route of the Amstel Gold Race 2017 - the 52nd edition of the race - is a little bit different from last year and the race now contains two additional climbs (and one less climb of the Cauberg, which brings the total number of climbs to 35), in the race route of this race which is part of the UCI WorldTour (in 2011 the number of climbs went up from 31 to 32 and in 2012 it went back down to 31, before going up to 34 in 2013 and now thus 35 in 20
