Julian Alaphilippe: New Amstel Gold Race course is like World Championships



Ahead of his return to Amstel Gold Race on Sunday, world champion Julian Alaphilippe has compared the new, circuit-based parcours to the World Championships, noting how challenging and nervous he expects Sunday’s race to be.

The race – the biggest of the Dutch cycling calendar – hasn’t been held since 2019, when Alaphilippe missed out on a possible victory in devastating fashion after Mathieu van der Poel’s iconic late charge.
