Euskaltel missed out on the prizes in the dutch classic The Amstel Gold Race. In the beginning they made the pace in the peloton, keeping the break of the day in a decent reach, but afterwards it all went downhill. Samuel Sánchez was the strongest of the team and was the only one who was able to follow the group of the favourites. Unfortunately they came to late and he sprinted to a 14th spot.
