Women's Amstel Gold Race - Race Overview

Santos Women’s Tour Down Under champion Amanda Spratt produced a memorable performance at the Amstel Gold Race in the Netherlands today, taking third place for Mitchelton-SCOTT after animating what turned out to be the race winning breakaway.

It took while for the move to go and once it did Spratt was right in the thick of the action as eight riders went clear of a splitting peloton.

Most of the big teams were represented in the attack and the group carried a significant advantage into the finishing circuit before the winning moves came over the final ascent of the Cauberg.

When the final attacks came Spratt was on her toes and matched the moves before digging herself and leading over the top with Chantal Blaak (Boels-Dolmans) and Lucinda Brand (Team-Sunweb).

A stronger sprinter, it was Blaak who took the victory with Brand in second and Spratt in an impressive third to ignite Mitchelton-SCOTT’S Ardennes Classics campaign in superb fashion.
