Mathieu van der Poel didn't win a stage himself at this year's Tour de France, but he did play a key team role using his raw firepower and tactical nous to help teammate Jasper Philipsen secure four stage wins and the green jersey. He carried out his work on the new Canyon Aeroad which he has been riding for some time, however, the Dutchman was on a fresh bike for the Tour with van der Poel riding an all-white bike for the three-week race. 

At Milan-San Remo earlier this year, Mathieu van der Poel launched one of his trademark big attacks on the Poggio to put clear air between him and a chasing group of Filippo Ganna, Wout van Aert and Tadej Pogacar. They never brought him back and he won by 15 seconds on the Via Roma. He was riding a new, as yet unreleased Canyon Aeroad.
