Van Aert back on the cyclocross bike

Today Wout van Aert will start his cyclocross season. He will do so in Kortrijk, Belgium. After his successful road season, he has slowly built up to the first cyclocross races.

“At the moment I am certainly not in top form. I hope to be able to use the first races, in Kortrijk, Tabor and Boom, to get better”, Van Aert said.

"It is not realistic to be in top shape right away"

“It is not realistic to be in top shape right away. I have raced long enough to know that the level is very high. Don’t forget that I will be riding against the world top on Saturday. Those men have been working towards this all summer. My start-up period is much too short. I hope that I can keep up on character and condition, but don’t expect me to make the race.”
