Wout Van Aert won his fourth Belgian Cyclo cross almost unopposed having rode the sic of the last 9 laps alone.The wet conditions meant the bike wheels had better had traction which thankfully most did. The uphill slops tested the sprinting abilities of riders as well. Last years Champions Laurens made a competitive start but could not keep up at the end. The course tested the arm strength of the riders too, they had to carry their bikes at some junctures. Wout Van Aert celebrates the birth of his son in style with this win which adds to the titles he won in 2016,2017 and 2018. He finished ahead of Toon Aerts in second,Michael Vanthourenhout in third and last year’s winner Laurens Sweeck in fourth.
