A shot Mathieu Van der Poel won his sixth world title


The Dutch runner Mathieu van der Poel This Sunday he was awarded his sixth cyclocross world title at the Czech Tabor circuit, where he single-handedly won by 37 seconds over his compatriot Joris Nieuwenhuis. Belgian Michael Vanthourenhout completed the podium by more than a minute.

The Alpecin rider’s performance was much anticipated as he was deprived of his two main rivals who finished their winter season (preferring road training), the Belgian Wout Van Aert (the only rider who challenged him this winter. ) and the British Tom Pidcock (winner in 2022).

With this sixth title, the grandson of Raymond Poulidor came a little closer to the record of seven held by the Belgian Eric De Vlaeminck between 1966 and 1973, although the Dutchman recently acknowledged that this record was not a goal , preferring instead to add it to his impressive track record on the road.

Last year he became world champion on asphalt in Glasgow, after winning Milan-San Remo and Paris-Roubaix.
