ORICA-GreenEDGE Announces Ardennes Rosters and Objectives
header_logooricage One of the most important weeks of the spring season for ORICA-GreenEDGE begins on Sunday with the Amstel Gold Race. With multiple cards to play at each of the three Ardennes Classics, the Australian outfit lines up in Maastricht with a strong roster to support the team’s big ambitions.

AMSTEL GOLD RACE // APRIL 20, 2014.

Simon Gerrans equalled his best Amstel Gold Race result last year when he rode himself onto the podium. Second in the chase group sprint, Gerrans claimed third place behind Roman Kreuziger (Tinkoff-Saxo), who took the win from a late race race break, and Alejandro Valverde (Movistar), who edged out Gerrans in the three-up sprint. We are returning with nearly the identical group as last year with the inclusion of classics veteran and local Mathew Hayman. The team aims to improve upon the result achieved last year.

What they’re saying about Amstel Gold Race:

“We have a great team for Amstel. We’ve got plenty of cards to play beyond our team leader Simon Gerrans, and that is a luxury in a race like this. Of the three races next week, Amstel is the one that suits the characteristics of our team the best. ” – Sport Director Matt White

“I’m really happy with my condition at the moment leading into Amstel Gold. Although it’s been a turbulent spring for me with sickness and few minor setbacks, the final phase of my preparation for the Ardennes has gone really well. I’ve put the rungs on the board with Amstel in the past, so I’m probably going to be the guy the team looks to get a result on Sunday, and I feel up for the challenge.” – Simon Gerrans

“The goal is to win, but there are a lot of other teams and riders with the exact same goal. I think the main difference is that we have several guys that could win this race where others team might only have one. It gives us good confidence to know that we have so many different options because on race day, the race could unfold any number of ways, and we have every option covered.” – Michael Matthews
