    The Amstel Gold Race 2014 race route on Google Maps/Google Earth and its itinerary

    The Amstel Gold Race 2014 race route on Google Maps/Google Earth and its itineraryThis Sunday, the Dutch classic race, the Amstel Gold Race, will take place between Maastricht and ... the Rijksweg in Vilt. Indeed, since last year, the finish is no longer on the top of the Cauberg in Valkenburg but at the same place as where the races of the 2012 World Championships finished.

    The Amstel Gold Race 2014 race route is almost identical compared to last year and the race will thus still contain 34 climbs for this UCI WorldTour race (in 2011 it went up from 31 to 32 to drop back down in 2012 to 31 and go up to 34 in 2013). In this article you'll find the time- and route schedule, the race route on Google Maps and you can also download the map of the race route in Google Earth for example if you'd like to do a virtual flyover of the race.

    Niki Terpstra winner at the end of the cobble stones in Paris-Roubaix 2014The first reaction of Niki Terpstra, first Dutch winner of Paris-Roubaix after Servais Knaven in 2001, maybe best resumed the Hell of the North, version 2014. Indeed, after the queen of the classics, the rider of the Omega Pharma-QuickStep team, declared being very happy .. and very tired!

    It was a fatiguing race which remained undecided until the end on the cobbles between Compiègne and the Vélodrome of Roubaix this afternoon which didn't see the big favourite Fabian Cancellara (Trek Factory Racing), but a Dutch rider win this race for the first time since 13 years!

    Paris-Roubaix 2014: its race route, its cobble stone zones and the other details of the Hell of the North

    Paris-Roubaix 2014: its race route, its cobble stone zones and the other details of the Hell of the NorthAfter Fabian Cancellara's victory in a sprint of 4 in the Tour of Flanders last Sunday, we'll see in the Hell of the North this Sunday whether Spartacus can make it, like in 2010 and in 2013, a combination win of both races!

    In this article you'll find the Paris-Roubaix 2014 race route on Google Maps and in Google Earth as well as the details of the 28 cobble stones sections which will be part of this 112th edition of Paris-Roubaix and in which we see some changes compared to last year.

    The race route will be slightly different from last year: there will now be 28 cobble stones sections (one more than last year) and with 257 kilometers, the total distance is hardly any longer.
