Since it's such a nice day outside, NOT and this is the type of weather sometimes attached to the Tour of Flanders, I was wondering if anyone was interested in doing this next year Sat 6th April. My brother Thomas and I are looking into going if we get tickets which go on sale Wed 7th Nov at Midday. The 2019 edition returns to Antwerp for cyclists riding the 237km and 200km long routes, with four options on offer in total: 237km, 200km, 141km, and 74km. The plan is to take the ferry with our bikes on the Thursday, Sportif Saturday, watch the Pro race and have a few Belgium beers Sunday, Ferry home Monday, Shattered Tuesday in need of a holiday. If anyone is interested in going post up and we'll organize a plan of attack. Cost in region of €400-€500. Mise le meas Anthony.
Best laid plans of mice and men, my wife informed me that My daughters Confirmation is on Friday 5th April so Flanders is off for this year. Having looked at the other's have decided The Amstel classic on 20th April, Easter weekend 240KM with 3706m Climbing. I've reg'd a Team as Cork Rebels so if anyone is interested in this instead I can send a link to your email to accept, come on you know you want to. Reg is €48 if successful in Lottery. www.amstel.nl/amstelgoldrace
The registration for the tourversion on Saturday 20th of April 2019 will start in October and last a month. After the registration has closed, we will inform you by email if you have been placed as participant or not.
If you have been placed as particpant you will receive information about payment. Only after payment the registration is complete. The fee for Amstel Gold Race 2019 is € 48, including € 6 deposit. You can get the deposit back afterwards.
What does the procedure look like?
Participants take place in a lottery registration system. There is no difference between those registering on the first or last day. We will ask you for certain information including address, telephone number and preferred riding distance. The registration is personal and can not be transferred to another rider. The organisation will verify name, address and email address to prevent people signing up more than once.
Please note: you will receive important information on your email adress. Make sure your email address is valid. We optimized the entire registration system, therefore old Amstel accounts don't work anymore.
Participant We need your personal information like address, phone numbers and email address to register you as a participant. Please complete it carefully and correctly. If you are given a place, you will receive documents relating to the race day at this address a few weeks before the Tour starts. Please also ensure that you enter a current, valid email address. Confirmation of your registration will be sent to this email address. You should keep this email safe because it is proof of your registration.
Start a new team/join an existing team After your registration as participant you can join an existing team or make a new team.
Controle & Finish Check if all your data is correct. If you happen to find something wrong, just press change to go back to the data and correct what is wrong. Next you need to read the rules and if you agree to the rules, confirm.
Finalize registration By clicking finish registration your registraion will be confirmed and you will receive a confirmation email on your email address. Save this mail well and/or print the e-mail, because it is your proof of registration. If you find a mistake in the data you enter in your confirmation email, you can login to you account on the website and correct it.
The draw After the registration period has elapsed a draw will be carried out. As previously mentioned there will be a maximum number of 15,000 places. During the registration period you can use your login information on your personal page. On this page, you and your friends who have also registered as an individual can form teams. If one of your team members is selected for a place, then the whole team will become registered. If you or your teammates are not successful in this first draw, everyone is still eligible to participate in the draw for the remaining individual spots.
Once you've drawn a place you will also be informed about the payment of the remaining registration fee. The registration is only final when the full registration fee is received by the Amstel Gold Race. A reserve list will also be drawn up for riders to replace those who do not pay the full fee. The organisation’s decision regarding places on the Tourversion Amstel Gold Race is final. Good luck!
