Five on five, this was the perfect report of Van der Poel in the world cup. In Diegem, he found also a trail that it is, because the European champion, won every cross he ever started. And with the form in which he also this season is, was again at the competition to show that VDP to beat.

Lars van der haar took in Diegem the best start, but just like yesterday in Bredene came Wout van Aert particularly bad way. The world champion was not in the top 20 at the start of the field. Also Van der Poel had a bad start, but the Dutchman could from about the 15th place, faster way to forward jobs. The missed start of the two tenors was the signal for Toon Aerts and Laurens Sweeck to up the tempo to chase in the front.

Also Michael Vanthourenhout was well attended. The rider of Marlux-Bingoal pulled at the start of round three on an adventure with Van der Poel, who in the meantime, the way forward had been found. A lap later, Van der Poel a minute ahead of his crony, Vanthourenhout, who are hard weerde. However, this seemed to be the beginning of a new solo of the European champion. That was not in the least, because in round four was Van der Poel suddenly beside the bike: he was quite onzacht collision with an official. The damage seemed to be already to fall, and so could the Dutchman his way quickly to prosecute. Vanthourenhout was by the incident or on the head.

Mathieu van der Poel quickly got up again, but seemed to have recovered from the fall. At the end of round five, took the European champion already called it a day and he pulled once again at the attack. Vanthourenhout tried it a few minutes, but did eventually. He kept a gap on a chasing trio: Wout van Aert and the Telenet Fidea cycling team Lions duo of Lars van der haar Toon Aerts.

Van der Poel did in the slotrondes never more to worry, and finally won with a clear lead on Vanthourenhout, who are a handsome race, he performed with the second place. Toon Aerts reed in the slot away from his two companions and picked up the final podium spot.
