BMC Racing Team's Greg Van Avermaet finished fifth and Philippe Gilbert was 10th Sunday as the reigning world road champion, Michal Kwiatkowski (Etixx-Quick Step), won Amstel Gold Race.

Brabantse Pijl winner Ben Hermans led out the sprint for Van Avermaet from a small group that formed after the final ascent of the Cauberg inside the last two kilometers of the 258 km race. Van Avermaet took the lead inside the final 150 meters but could not hold off the charge from behind. Alejandro Valverde (Movistar Team) was runner-up ahead of Michael Matthews (ORICA-GreenEDGE) and Rui Costa (Lampre-Merida).

Van Avermaet was in the top five for the ninth time this season after finishing third at Paris-Roubaix and Ronde van Vlaanderen the past two weekends.

Gilbert, the defending champion and three-time winner of this race, notched his seventh top 10 finish in 10 starts of the WorldTour race.
