Technical mishaps leave runner-up Van der Poel disappointed after Superprestige Heusden-Zolder

Long-time adversaries Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) and Mathieu van der Poel’s (Alpecin-Deceuninck) cyclocross abilities are so well-matched it only takes a slight technical error to have the pendulum swing in favour of the other. 

Take Tuesday’s Superprestige Heusden-Zolder in east Belgium, for example, when Van der Poel, fresh off a solo victory against the Belgian champion at World Cup Gavere the day prior, fell victim to two technical slip-ups, causing the Dutch star to cede victory to Van Aert in a thrilling two-up sprint on the motorsports tarmac of Circuit Zolder.
