The busy Belgian Christmas Week of cyclocross continued today with the UCI C2 Brico Cross in West Flanders’ Bredene.

The heavy, muddy race served up the third win in five races for the 2017 World Champion Wout van Aert (Crelan Charles), while halting the dominance of 2017 European Champion Mathieu van der Poel (Beobank Corendon).

While Van der Poel overcame a slow start to join Van Aert at the front of the race, multiple mistakes and a high pace by Van Aert forced Van der Poel into a conservative ride focused on second place.

Van der Poel enjoyed some family time during the middle of the race, riding with older brother and teammate David as well as Tim Merlier (Crelan Charles).

Van der Poel would shed his companions to finish solo in second, while Quinten Hermans (Telenet Fidea) would rise to third.
