PTP - Amstel Gold

Postby TheBigBean » Thu Apr 11, 2013 13:27 pm

To help (I think) rozzer32 out with some of the admin.

14th April 2013

Start list

Webiste

http://www.amstel.nl

Previous winners

2000 Erik Zabel
2001 Erik Dekker
2002 Michele Bartoli
2003 Alexandre Vinokourov

2007 Stefan Schumacher
2008 Damiano Cunego

For the seasoned pro:

"This year’s Amstel Gold Race, the 48th edition, has a different finish location. The new finish line will be 1.8 kilometers further on from the famous Cauberg in Valkenburg, in exactly the same location as the 2012 cycling World Championships. In addition, this year’s hopefuls must also climb the Cauberg twice in the final stages of the race."

Sagan please

momentarily from the herd and thinks for himself.

Nocentini for me (continuing my unsuccesful policy of deliberately not picking Cancellara, Sagan, Contador, Rodriguez or Gilbert for any race)

I think Sagan will win but my PTP pick is

Gilbert please

No logic, just Sagan is due some sort of bad luck surely.

I don't do the PTP, but this tickled me:

"This year’s Amstel Gold Race, the 48th edition, has a different finish location. The new finish line will be 1.8 kilometers further on from the famous Cauberg in Valkenburg, in exactly the same location as the 2012 cycling World Championships. In addition, this year’s hopefuls must also climb the Cauberg twice in the final stages of the race."


'Cos I wrote it!

If was doing PTP I'd also have Sagan.
