Amstel Gold Race - Race Overview

European champion Matteo Trentin took his chances today in Amstel Gold Race, putting himself in the mix with 30kilometres remaining in what turned out to be an unpredictable and exciting finale.

For the final kilometres of the race it looked like Trentin was in contention for a podium finish, chasing down two leaders alongside Michal Kwiatowski (Team Sky), but despite their hard efforts, a chasing group made contact inside the final 500metres of the 265km day, with Mathieu van der Poel (Corendon-Circus) passing the leaders just before the line to take an exhilarating victory.
