The Men’s Elite Race at the Superprestige series in Middelkerke provided plenty of entertainment, with Kevin Pauwels, Tom Meeusen, Mathieu ven der Poel, Lars van der Haar, and Wout van Aert all spending time at the front, four of which could have taken the overall series if the dice rolled the right way.
Still, not all the entertainment happened in the 60 minutes of racing. Mathieu ven der Poel put on quite the show. He’s been known to attempt tricks in the midst of a race, but after his crash in the middle of the Men’s Elite Race, he looked like he left the fun heroics to pre-riding. Great captures by Mario Vanacker.
