Historic Wins at Amstel Gold Race – Tadej Pogacar & Demi Vollering Take Home Maiden Titles

by admin

Tadej Pogacar won the Amstel Gold Race with a fantastic solo performance. He was 38 seconds ahead of Ben Healy from Ireland and Tom Pidcock from Britain, who came in second and third respectively. Additionally, Demi Vollering from Holland took home her first win for the women’s race.

The two time Tour de France champion, Pogacar (24 years old) helped to form a team of 16 riders at the start of the 253.6km race. However, 70 km into the race his tyre started to deflate and he struggled to get help as his support car was out of reach. Later on, at 39 km before target, he was able to change his cycling bike and re-join the group easily by accelerating off the Kruisberg climb towards the end goal all alone.

Only Pidcock and Healy could keep competing against Pogacar, however he quickly got ahead of them. Then EF Education-EasyPost’s rider Healy was the first one unable to continue while Ineos Grenadiers’ Pidcock was able to go on a few more seconds before dropping out too. Pogacar completed his 11th victory this season, meanwhile Healy was still able to beat Pidcock by taking second place.

Tadej Pogacar recently won a famous bike race called the Tour of Flanders which makes him only the 4th rider ever to win both Tour of f he Flanders and Amstel Gold in one season. It’s expected that he’ll take first place in the Fleche Wallonne and Liege-Bastogne-Liege races next week, before trying to win his third Tour de France title.

Tadej Pogacar is really good at bike racing, and he has already gotten many wins. He’s on track to become as good as some of the best racers ever like Bernard Hinault and Eddy Merckx.

When talking about his success, Tadej said: “It’s amazing! I didn’t expect us to get a breakaway so quickly.”

“My bike had a flat tire so I couldn’t ride as fast as normal, but eventually I put in a lot of effort and made it to the finish line.”

Demi Vollering’s Epic Win at the Amstel Gold Race!

Demi Vollering has had a great season by winning two major cycling races, Strade Bianche and Dwars door Vlaanderen. In the women’s race of the 155.8km course, Demi Vollering won with Soraya Paladin jumping in front of all the other riders around 8km away from the finish line.

Grace Brown from Australia was with the group of favorites when they reached 5km, but started to slow down when they hit the final climb at Cauberg which was less than 2km away. Anneke Vollering made a strong attack on the right side and managed to pull away from everyone else and won the race by 8 seconds! Lotte Kopecky came in second place and Shirin van Anrooij placed third. When talking about her win, Anneke said that she still couldn’t believe it even though this is what she had planned for.

I was running so fast that I didn’t dare to turn back. The Amstel Gold Race had a major men’s and women’s competition, with Tadej Pogacar from Slovenia being the first in men’s competition and Demi Vollering from Netherlands winning in the women’s race. Ben Healy from Ireland came second in the males and Lotte Kopecky from Belgium came second in females. Tom Pidcock from Great Britain scored third place in male, while Alexey Lutsenko and Andreas Kron shared their fourth place position together.

Shirin van Anrooij (Netherlands, Trek-Segafredo), Katarzyna Niewiadoma (Poland, Canyon-SRAM Racing), and Soraya Paladin (Italy, Canyon-SRAM Racing) all finished at the same time.
