Van der Poel obeys unspoken rules of road at UCI Gravel World Championships

The definition of the so-called spirit of gravel, that most nebulous of concepts, seems to exist entirely in the eye of the beholder, but the unspoken rules of the road were certainly on show in the inaugural edition of the UCI Gravel World Championships, where Gianni Vermeersch (Belgium) claimed the crown.

Mathieu van der Poel‘s dexterity across all disciplines made him the obvious favourite to be fitted for yet another rainbow jersey in his first-ever gravel race in the Veneto, but the Dutchman found himself hemmed in behind the winning move due to the presence of Vermeersch, his teammate on the road at Alpecin-Deceuninck.
