Wout van Aert disappointed to have ‘lost heart’ at Cyclo-cross Worlds

Wout van Aert disappointed to have ‘lost heart’ at Cyclo-cross Worlds



Either Wout van Aert or Mathieu van der Poel would grab a fourth world title in Ostend on Sunday afternoon at the UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships. The pre-race favourites didn’t disappoint and finished 1-2, but not in the order the home fans, and Van Aert, hoped for.

Van Aert had the upper hand in the much-anticipated duel during the first half of the race, opening a gap of 20 seconds at one point. But a puncture on the third lap of the race ruined his day.
