Tras to live an intense week in terms of cycling at the highest level, with World Tour races of the size of Back to the Basque Country and Paris-Roubaix, from Monday 15 to Sunday 21 April we will live a more relaxed cycling days. Here we review the weekly cyclist:

Return to Turkey (April 16 to 21): The edition of the Tour of Turkey 2019 has advanced its date, since last year was the penultimate date of the calendar. It will serve as a preparation for riders who want to improve their point to face the Giro d'Italia.. Istanbul will be the starting and finishing place, in a race that consists of six stages and does not have a time trial, so the sprinters , climbers and good runners in the leaks will have their victory options.

Amstel Gold Race (April 21): without a doubt, it will be the most important event of this week. The first classic of the Ardennes arrives on the calendar with many unknowns, but two big favorites to the triumph: Julian Alaphilippe and Alejandro Valverde. The Frenchman of the Deceuninck, leader of the UCI ranking and with a total of 7 victories in 2019, will be the great rival to beat for the rest of the candidates, since their fitness in this season is still sensational. He will arrive after suffering a hard fall that forced him to withdraw from the Tour of the Basque Country, which may have been affected his preparation for this classic.
