    The Amstel Gold Race 2019 race route on Open Street Maps/Google Earth and the time- and route scheduleThis Sunday, the only Dutch classic, the Amstel Gold Race, 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 2012 World Championships races was.

    The Amstel Gold Race 2019 - which will be the 54th edition - race route is a bit different from last year, especially for the final lap, but the race still has all its climbs, 35 to be precise, which allows it to be a UCI WorldTour race (in 2011 it went up from 31 to 32 and in 2012 back down to 31, before going up to 34 in 2013 and now thus 35 since 2017). In this article you'll find the time- and route schedule and the race route on Open Street Maps (similar to Google Maps) and you can also download the race route in Google Earth in order to do a virtual fly-over for example.

    The description of the Amstel Gold Race 2019 race route

    After the start from the Vrijthof in the city center of Maastricht (instead of the "Markt" where the race usually started), the riders will first go up north towards Geulle where they'll turn right to climb the Slingerberg rapidly followed by the combination of the Adsteeg and Lange Raarberg climbs.
    A bit further, when the riders get on the part of the race route which they'll ride several times, they'll climb the Bergseweg (just before the part which is several times on the race route), followed by the Sibbergrubbe, Cauberg and a first crossing of the finish line in Vilt (the blue part on the map with the race route).

    The riders will then get on the first loop around the finish city, which is 123.3 km long and which starts with the climb of the Geulhemmerberg followed by a descent towards the Belgian border adn the climb of the Heiweg and the Kallenberg. They'll then follow the border to get on the Wolfsberg and the Loorberg before they'll shortly go up north again towards the city of Gulpen where they'll get close to the Gulpenerberg, without reaching its top, and back south via the climb of the Schweibergerweg before they turn left and again follow the border with the climb of Camerig, a short sidestep towards Vijlen before they go on to the Drielandenpunt (a small top where The Netherlands, Germany and Belgium come together), the climb of Gemmenich just on the other side of the Belgian border and Vijlenerbos once they come back to The Netherlands. This part of the race route is the green part on the map.

    The riders will then get on the purple part of the race route and they'll climb Eperheide and, going up north on the same race route as before, they'll change roads to climb the Gulperberg and the Plettenberg, Eyserweg, Sint Remigiusstraat, Vrakelberg and again the combination of Sibbergrubbe and Cauberg followed by a second crossing of the finish line.

    The 2nd loop around the finish line, 68.9 kilometers long and in red on the map, again contains the climb of the Geulhemmerberg. After a short go and forth south of Maastricht/Bemelen, the riders will turn right towards the climb of the Bemelerberg before they get back to the race route of the green loop where they'll this time, after the Loorberg, go straight and then turn left to go on towards the Gulperberg after which they'll go on to the Kruisberg (instead of turning on the Plettenberg like they did at the first visit) followed by the Eyserbosweg and the Fromberg. The peloton then turns left in Schin op Geul to get onto the Keutenberg before they'll climb for the third and thus now last climb of the Cauberg which will this time be followed by a final loop (in orange) which is similar to the circuit of the 2012 World Championships and was slightly modified this year compared to previous years, but still contains the climb of the Geulhemmerberg and the Bemelerberg. This time the race will thus not get back on the Cauberg!

    The start of the race will be at 10.30AM and the finish is planned around 4.49PM. The total distance will this year be 265.7 kilometers.
