10 from the Amstel Gold Race. This race may be relatively younger than all of the important Spring Classics, but it is a difficult race, and the racing is good. The parcours is over 250km, and winds about itself, climbing seemingly every hill in the Limburg area, on winding small country roads. There are 34 climbs in total, but usually the race is only decided on the final climb. The break seldom makes it, and riders are shaking with exhaustion at the finish. The start list in 2014 was impressive - with 3 current world champions, Rui Costa (Road), Tony Martin (TT), and Matej Mohoric (U23).
