    From the highest village in the Netherlands, a flying start is guaranteed from the free parking lot in the center of Vijlen. It is immediately nice to bulge down. Only the descent in this route is slightly different. The race does not visit the South Limburg attractions of Epen or Vaals, but looks northwards for the most beautiful undiscovered roads along Bocholtz, Simpelveld and Heerlen. Cycling from “Haije” to “Adieë wa” and back.You don't have to wait long for the first test of the day. In Lemiers you cross the border to Germany via a narrow bicycle path. Here the climb towards Orsbach awaits you. A tough customer who slowly but surely makes a beautiful view loom up behind your back. So be sure to look around!When the legs are warm, the route slowly gets lost in miles of quiet roads along the edges of Parkstad. It is never flat, but it is certainly not a challenge. It's coming! Enjoy these trails as they are the calm before the storm.Just past Terworm Castle, the most northern point of the route has been reached. The course reverses, and that means climbing! The first serious test is the Oude Elkenraderweg. Followed by the clapper of the day. Perhaps the big absentee in the Amstel Golde Race. The Dead Man. This slope, with gradients that run into double digits for hundreds of meters, bears the stamp of 'wall' with gusto. This is a wrecker!The toughest climb of the day is over. That's on paper then. Because after the Doodeman, the final climbs back to Vijlen feel just a bit harder. But higher percentages than in a delicious Val-Dieu Tripel are no longer available. So keep on biting, and head straight for the terrace. Cheers!
