Wout Van Aert Shows Early-Season Power To Win Omloop Het Nieuwsblad
Local hero Wout van Aert opened the classic season by surging away from a powerful pack to win Het Nieuwsblad on Saturday. Van Aert attacked with 13 kilometres to go at the foot of the Bosberg, the last climb. A star-studded leading group hesitated before giving chase but even when they organised a pursuit, Van Aert, a Belgian who rides for Jumbo-Visma, continued to power away from them.
