Belgium's Philippe Gilbert defended his Amstel Gold Race title with an explosive final burst past Spaniard Joaquim Rodriguez on Sunday.

Gilbert claimed victory ahead of Rodriguez who had pushed ahead once race leader Andy Schleck of Luxembourg had been caught on the final climb, with Australia's Simon Gerrans third according to provisional results.
