The forty – ninth edition of the Volta Limburg Classic will take place on the 6th April 2019.
The route has been changed for 2019. The first part now consists of a heavy, hilly circuit of more than 90 kms. The riders then reach the local circuits in Vaals, the Gemennicherweg will be climbed three times, shortly after each other.
The riders will then race 50 kms (including Gulperberg and Koning van Spanje) before reaching Eijsden. Just as in the previous editions, there are four vicious climbs in the last 20 kms that follow each other in quick succession: the Misterelindje, the Hoesberg, the Kalleberg and the slope of Moerslag.
On arrival in Eijsden one local circuitwill be races, and then the traditional finish on the cobblestones of the Diepstraat.
Winners have often gone onto greater things, in 2018 Jan Tratnik took the honours but past winners have been Stefan Kung, Moreno Hoffland and back in 2008 a young Tony Martin.
