    The Amstel Gold Race 2012 race route on Google Maps/Google Earth and the route and time scheduleThis Sunday, the Dutch cycling classic, the Amstel Gold Race, will take place between Maastricht and the Cauberg in Valkenburg.

    The race route of the Amstel Gold Race 2012 has been very slightly modified compared to last year's and the removal of one of the two climbs of the Geulhemmerberg brings back the number of climbs to 31 instead of 32 in last year's edition of this UCI WorldTour race (in 2011 it went up from 31 to 32). 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 and do a virtual fly-over if you wish to do so.

    THe description of the race route

    After the start from the Markt in Maastricht the riders will first go north via the Maasberg up to Urmond where they will cross over to Geleen before following up the climbs of the Adsteeg, Lange Raarberg, Bergseweg, Sibbergrubbe, Cauberg, Wolfsberg, Loorberg, Schweiberg (Schweibergerweg), Camerig, Drielandenpunt, Gemmenich, Vijlenerbos, Eperheide, Gulpenerberg, Plettenberg (van Plettenbergweg), Eyserweg, Sint Remigiusstraat - Huls, Vrakelberg, the second climb of the Sibbergrubbe, the second climb of the Cauberg, Geulhemmerberg, Bemelerberg, the second climb of the Wolfsberg, the second climb of the Loorberg, the second climb of the Gulpenerberg, Kruisberg, the Eyserbosweg, Fromberg, Keutenberg and finally the third climb of the Cauberg where they'll cross the finish line for the last time. In the final part of the race, the riders will no longer go into the city of Valkenburg: from Sibbe, they'll no longer turn right but continue straight through to the climb of the Cauberg.

    The race will start at 10.15AM and it is supposed to finish around 4.45PM. The total distance will be 3.9 kilometers shorter than last year: 256.5 kilometers.

    The Amstel Gold Race 2012 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 to do so:

    > Download the Amstel Gold Race 2012 race route in Google Earth

    This file not only allows you to see the whole race route in Google Earth but also to do a virtual fly-over of it. In order to do so, you can use the default configuration as suggested by Google Earth, but if you prefer to do a fly-over which gives you the idea you're riding on the roads of the Amstel Gold Race 2012, I'd recommend you the following configuration: 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. Maybe Philippe Gilbert starts his winning season at Amstel Gold?

  3. Bonjour, l'horaire de passage est-il secret ? quand je clique sur celui-ci j'ai une page noire. Et sur le site Amstel (en Neerlandais et Anglais !) j'ai l'itinéraire, mais sans horaire. Pouvez vous m'aider ?

  4. @Collard Pierre : je vous ai répondu par mail ; cela fonctionne correctement, donc il doit probablement y avoir un problème spécifique à votre navigateur.
