Amstel Gold Race

The Amstel Gold Race is a road bicycle race held (mostly) in the southern part of the province of Limburg, Netherlands. Since 1989 it has been among the races included in season long rankings tables, as part of the UCI Road World Cup (1989–2004), the UCI ProTour (2005–2010), UCI World Ranking (2009–2010) and from 2011 the UCI World Tour. It is the most important road cycling event of the Netherlands.

The name does not directly refer to the river Amstel, which is far away from the course, but to the sponsor, the Amstel brewery.

Famous quotes containing the words race and/or gold:

    The true worth of a race must be measured by the character of its womanhood.
    Mary Mcleod Bethune (1875–1955)

    There is, of course, a gold mine or a buried treasure on every mortgaged homestead. Whether the farmer ever digs for it or not, it is there, haunting his daydreams when the burden of debt is most unbearable.
    Fawn M. Brodie (1915–1981)
