Marianne Vos won her second Amstel Gold Race after Lorena Wiebes (SD Worx-Protime) celebrated too early. The Visma-Lease a Bike rider was coming fast on the lefthand side of the former European champion, and with her compatriot already raising her arms, Vos threw her bike past Wiebes and took the win, with Ingvild Gåsjenn (Liv AlUla Jayco) finishing third.

The race, originally 157.6 km, was shortened early on due to a semi-race-related incident up the road – a police officer collided with a car on the Bergseweg. With only 54 km to race after the neutralisation, there were some weird tactics going on, as teams tried to cram 110 km of racing into a little over an hour.
