Tomorrow the Dutch classic, the Amstel Gold Race, will take place between Maastricht and the Cauberg in Valkenburg.

The Amstel Gold Race 2011 race route has been very slightly modified compared to last year and a second climb of the Geulhemmerberg brings the total number of climbs to 32 instead of 31 on the race route of this UCI WorldTour race. In this article you'll find the time and route schedule, the race route on Google Maps and you can download the race route in Google Earth so you could for example make a virtual fly-over.

The Amstel Gold Race 2011 race route in Google Earth

Do you prefer to watch the race route in Google Earth and for example do a virtual fly-over of the race route? Download the KML file below:

> Download the Amstel Gold Race 2011 race route in Google Earth

This file will not only allow you to visualise the whole route in Google Earth but also to do a virtual fly-over over the route. To do so, you can of course use the default configuration for Google Earth, but if you would like to do a virtual fly-over as if you were riding on the roads of the Amstel Gold Race 2011, I would recommend the following settings: in the menu Tools > Options choose the tab Touring and fill in the following choices on that tab:
- Camera tilt angle : 80.0 degrees
- Camera range : 150.0 meters
- Speed : 500.0 (if this makes you feel dizzy or if your computer or Internet connection don't allow you to get clear images with these settings, you can try lowering the speed)

  2. Oops! Je n'avais pas mis la bonne version du fichier ... maintenant il y a les heures aussi :-). Heureusement il y en a qui font attention !

    Le pire c'est que je ne pourrai même pas voir la course en direct :-(
