Re: Amstel Gold Race

What we learned


1 - Gilbert back to 2011 form  (as if there was doubt after RvV  :D )

2 - Kwiatkowski was simply awesome.  He will be tough to beat at Liege

3 - GVA and Valverde need to watch the moves more closely.  They were both super strong, but didnt bridge at the crucial time and the race was gone.  Quickstep has attacked early and hard at every single race this spring - and many times that move has stayed away for the win. 

4 - Moving the finish worked.  This was the best Amstel Gold Race we have had in years. 

5 - The 4 favourites for LBL have each had an amazing spring.   3 have won monuments, and 1 has won all stage races he has faced.  One of them will have a perfect spring and the rest just great ones.
