The French and Flandrian cobbles are done and dusted, and the hills of Ardennes now take centre stage, with the 34 climbs of the Amstel Gold Race first on the agenda.
The Amstel Gold Race is the first of the three Ardennes Classics and will be followed by La Fleche Wallonne and Liege-Bastogne-Liege, with a strong field expected in Limburg to battle defending champion Roman Kreuziger (Tinkoff-Saxo) for the title.
Kreuziger stole a march on his rivals last year and soloed to victory. But who will be in contention this time out?
