With the overall X²0 Badkamers Trofee series title looking secure under Eli Iserbyt’s (Pauwels Sauzen – Bingoal) control, the biggest question was who could end their season on a high note, in the penultimate race of the season.

Former World Champ Erwin Vervecken put together a challenging course in Brussels, and took viewers through it by bike:

Toon Aerts (Telenet Baloise Lions), sitting in second overall but over three minutes in arrears, showed early on that he was determined to put the pressure on Iserbyt.

Yesterday’s winner in Eeklo, Quinten Hermans, also started quickly with the hopes of making it a weekend double.

In the end, it was the bronze medalist at the 2021 World Championships who finished up the series in dominant fashion and showed that without Mathieu van der Poel or Wout Van Aert in attendance, he’s the man to beat.

Iserbyt had a steady ride to finish sixth and secure the overall series win.

Hermans kept up his momentum for his second-straight podium with a second place on the day, while U23 rising star Niels Vandeputte (Alpecin Fenix) finished third.

American Jonathan Anderson finished 37th, with Canadian Cameron Jette in 38th.
