For this edition of Throwback Thursday we’re going back to this past September to the opening round of the 2015 World Cup at Cross Vegas. Wout van Aert was the man of the hour taking the win and the first World Cup leader’s jersey of the season.

We spoke with van Aert at the end of the historic race, the first World Cup in the US. We obviously suspected, but didn’t know, that at the end of the season we’d see van Aert put on the World Champion’s rainbow jersey.

Hear what Wout had to say about the Las Vegas round of the World Cup. And stay tuned to Cyclocross Magazine to see if he’s on the start list for the two World Cups on US soil this year Las Vegas and Iowa City’s Jingle Cross. We bet he will be.

This video was posted on YouTube by us, back on September 17, 2015, and is titled “Interview: Wout van Aert, Winner of CrossVegas World Cup.”
