CX Worlds: Silver and Bronze for Wout van Aert and Toon Aerts

CX Worlds: Silver and Bronze for Wout van Aert and Toon Aerts

Nothing could hold Matieu van der Poel from his second CX world title, but the Dutchman didn't get it for free as Wout van Aert and Toon Aerts fought as lions to kill their most important contender.  

Bogense, Denmark, had a fast and technical parcours for the riders. Wout van Aert and Toon Aerts kept Van der Poel under control but they both made a little mistake on the curved side, what it made a tough race for them both. Van Aert set up an impressive comeback on Van der Poel but after a scond slipper the defending World Champion couldn't do more than riding for the second place.

Toon Aerts rode an even impressive second part of the race and got Van Aert back in order to get the Silver medal, but the Belgian champion made a little mistake in the last descend and had to be happy with Bronze, after a SIlver Wout van Aert.
