    The Amstel Gold Race 2022 race route on Open Street Maps/Google Earth and the time- and route scheduleThe Dutch classic, the Amstel Gold Race, will take place between Maastricht and ... the Rijksweg in Vilt tomorrow. Indeed, since 2013, the finish is no longer on top of the Cauberg in Valkenburg but at the same location as where the races of the Championnats du Monde 2012 finished.

    The race route of the Amstel Gold Race 2022 - which will be the 56th edition - contains 33 mounts, in this UCI WorldTour race (the number of mounts varies a bit, with a minimum of 31 in 2010 and 2012 and a maximum of 35 in 2017 and during the following years). In this article you'll find the time- and route schedule, the race route on Open Street Maps (similar to Google Maps) and you can also download the race route in Google Earth so you can for example do a virtual flyover of the race route.

    The description of the Amstel Gold Race 2022 race route

    Since the first round of the French presidential elections will take place this Sunday, the Amstel Gold Race and Paris-Roubaix have switched their position on the calendar and there where the Tour of the Bask country was historically a good preparation for the Amstel Gold Race, the riders who just finished the Tour of the Bask country will this year not be able to participate in the Amstel Gold Race!

    After the start from the Vrijthof in the city center of Maastricht, the riders will first go off north up to Geulle where they'll turn right to go up the Slingerberg, rapidly followed by the upfollowing climbs of Adsteeg and the Lange Raarberg.
    A bit further, when the riders get close to the part of the race route which will be done several times, they'll climb the Bergseweg (just before the part which will be done several times), and then Sibbergrubbe, Cauberg and a first crossing of the finish line in Vilt (the yellow part on the map with the race route).

    The riders then arrive on the first loop around the finish city, which starts with the climb of the Geulhemmerberg followed by a descent south towards the border with Belgium and the climb of the Wolfsberg and the Loorberg before a short incursion north of the city of Gulpen to get close to the Gulpenerberg, without however reaching its top, followed by a descent south via the climb of the Schweibergerweg before they turn left and follow the border with the climb of Camerig, a short excursion towards Vijlen before they go off to the Drielandenpunt (a small climb where The Netherlands, Germany and Belgim get together). This part of the race route is drawn in blue on the map.

    What will follow is the climb of Gemmenich just on the other side of the Belgian border and Vijlenerbos once they're back in The Netherlands. The riders will then be on the orange part of the race route and will climb Eperheide and then, going up north via the same race route as on the way there, they'll change route to climb the Gulperberg and the Plettenberg, Eyserweg, Sint Remigiusstraat, Vrakelberg and again Sibbergrubbe and Cauberg following up before a second crossing of the finish line.

    The 2nd loop around the finish line, in green on the map, again contains the climb of the Geulhemmerberg. After a back-and-forth just south of Maastricht/Bemelen, the riders turn right towards the climb of the Bemelerberg and, after the Loorberg, they'll go straight before turning left towards the Gulperbergweg after which they go off to find the Kruisberg (instead of turning towards the Plettenberg like in the first loop) followed by the Eyserbosweg and the Fromberg. The peloton turns left in Schin op Geul to get access the Keutenberg before the third and last climb of the Cauberg which will be followed by a last short loop (in pink) which is similar to the loop f the World Championships 2012, with the climb of the Geulhemmerberg and the Bemelerberg. This time it'll thus not go back to the Cauberg!

    The start will be at 10.20AM and the finish is planned around 4.47PM. The distance will this year be 254.1 kilometers.

    The time- and route schedule and the race route of the Amstel Gold Race 2022 on Open Street Maps

    Hereunder you'll find the race route on Open Street Maps (similar to Google Maps) and the profile and time- and route schedule (with the times the riders will come by in the different cities and towns on the race route). Click on the images to open them.

    In order to make the map easier to "read", the race route is shown in five parts: the first in yellow, the second in blue, the third in orange and the fourth in green. The last lap, 21.3 kilometers long, is shown in pink.

    NEW: in order to make it even easier to understand how the different parts of the race route follow up on each other, you can now show them one by one on the map. In order to do so, put your mouse on the icon with the 3 layers in the top right corner of the map and choose which part(s) you want to show by selecting or deselecting them.
