Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) will start his cyclo-cross season on December 4 at the Superprestige in Boom, Belgium, Wielerflits.nl reported on Wednesday. The Belgian's season debut will come two weeks before the expected arrival of World Champion Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix).

Both multi-discipline superstars will fit their 'cross campaigns around team camps. Van der Poel's Alpecin-Fenix team camp in Spain runs from December 1-10. The December 12 World Cup in Val di Sole may be too early for his return to the field, and he will likely start at the Rucphen World Cup on December 18 instead.
