Team Jumbo-Visma (Netherlands) - Press Release: Wout van Aert has won the Amstel Gold Race after a sprint that will not soon be forgotten. The Flemish rider of Team Jumbo-Visma beat Englishman Thomas Pidcock by a minimal margin. It is the fourteenth victory of the season for the yellow and black formation of manager Richard Plugge.
On the closed course in the hills of South Limburg, Team Jumbo-Visma always kept control of the race. Partly thanks to Paul Martens, who particated for the 15th time, the early breakaway only got limited space. At less than one hundred kilometres from the end the race really broke open. Team Jumbo-Visma was always in the forefront and with Jonas Vingegaard, Sam Oomen and Primoz Roglic almost always had a rider in the attack. On the last climb of the Cauberg Van Aert, together with world champion Alaphilippe and others, went full on. In the last lap Pidcock, Van Aert and the German Maximilian Schachmann had to decide who would win the Amstel Gold Race.
