Wout van Aert defends the title
The Belgian was once again crowned the men’s World Cyclocross Champion on Sunday. He beat Mathieu van der Poel in a dramatic race after the Dutch rider had suffered a few punctures.
“I had to face a lot mentally and it’s not always easy to keep my focus on the race, but I made it and I’m very proud of my team,” van Aert told cyclingweekly.co.uk after securing his second title.
A career change for Nairo? It’s not likely to happen.

Aussie journalist Michael Tomolaris thought he was going to get a heartfelt confession from a person who appeared to be Peter Sagan’s biggest fan. But he was wrong.

It seems Tony Martin still needs to get used to his new Katusha-Alpecin team. After the end of the aero training, he was expected to do a lap on a Canyon Urban, but there wasn’t anyone to hold him upright.
If you are out riding in bad weather, it means you’re a badass, Tom!
