No Wout van Aert and no Show Aerts at the start of the Waaslandcross. However, the party in Sint-Niklaas: Mathieu van der Poel. Without his two biggest challengers, it was still more than a foregone conclusion who the cross would win. Quinten Hermans and Tom Meeusen were able to a half cross, respond, and later claimed the European champion are just another number. He has performed as a soloist to his 16th victory of the season, behind him, grabbed Hermans in the second place. Meeusen crawled as third on the stage.
Tomorrow is the Wereldbekercross in Names.
