Mikaël Chérel: "Physically well
"This is my tenth participation in the Amstel Gold Race and I'm always happy to take part. This year the race has been placed between the Tour of Flanders (April 3) and Paris-Roubaix (April 17). The level will be even higher than usual. It kicks off two weeks of Ardennes classics with La Flèche Brabançonne (April 13), La Flèche Wallonne (April 20) and Liège-Bastogne-Liège (April 24), where my goal will be to support our leaders as best I can, especially Benoît Cosnefroy.
The Amstel Gold Race is a race that suits him perfectly even if I am nostalgic for the years with the finish at the top of the Cauberg. It would have been even better for him. I will make sure that I place him as well as possible throughout the race. These are very small roads and with the experience of the last few years, I know them by heart."[/su_quote]
