Mathieu van der Poel wins again.

The race: Here's the report from second-place Wout van Aert's Team Jumbo-Visma.

Wout van Aert graced his comeback in the field with a surprising second place. During the World cup race in Antwerpen, he demonstrated that he was in good shape.

"It's always great to be back in the cross”, Van Aert said in Antwerp. The Belgian champion immediately showed his enthusiasm. From the second row of the starting grid, Van Aert started riding at a high tempo and was the first to enter the field. The Team Jumbo-Visma rider decided to take his chances when eventual winner Mathieu van der Poel accelerated. "Mathieu's attack was what we had anticipated. You have to be at your best to keep up with him. I understood very quickly that his pace was too fast. Though it was nice to hold off the rest."

Van Aert had a good feeling about his comeback. "I surprised myself anyway. I didn't expect to be on the podium and be able to keep up with the high pace for an entire race. I could steer clear of mistakes by riding just below the limit. I am super satisfied", Van Aert said.

Women: Start list

Fem van Empel finishes more than a half-minute ahead of her nearest chaser.

Tour de France: 2022

Bill & Carol McGann’s book The Story of the Tour de France, 2022: The Fastest Tour Ever is available as in both Kindle eBook & audiobook versions. To get your copy, just click on the Amazon link on the right.

The race: Here is a machine-translation of the report from winner Fem van Empel's Pauwels Sauzen-Bingoal team.

Our Dutch former football star Fem van Empel has completely regained the goal in the World Cup round in Antwerp: she convincingly soloed to victory.

She predicted a month ago that after a busy November training month she would focus completely on winning again in December, and Fem van Empel also fulfilled that prediction on the beach of Sint-Anneke: after a first half of the match with too many mistakes she still soloed to another victory and an even stronger leading position in the World Cup. Our women's squad did extremely well across the board: Denise Betsema came fourth, Leonie Bentveld came 16th despite a broken shoe, Fleur Moors 18th, and Shanyl De Schoesitter won the junior competition.

Fem van Empel: “My hands were really cold during the first part of the race. [Ed: Note she isn't wearing gloves] Shifting and braking were a bit more difficult, and I also missed a corner a few times. I lacked focus, but in the second half of the race I felt good again. Fortunately, it still turned out well. Puck (Pieterse) was also really strong, but I was able to win at my own pace. I am very happy to be back in the race for the win. Although I was not bad in the previous crosses, of course.”
