ROME, ITALY – On a blistering fast, flat course, World Champion Mathieu van der Poel continued his winning ways to take yet another World Cup title ahead of Italy’s Gioele Bertolini and Dutchman Martijn Budding. Long-reigning US Champion Logan Owen came in fourth, and France’s Clement Russo rounded out the top five.
