Wout van Aert has shown his mastery in a wide range of road events during August’s opening fortnight of rescheduled racing.

He started the month with victory on the gravel roads of Strade Bianche, before claiming victory in Milan-San Remo a week later, and then won the uphill sprint on the opening stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné. On the race’s two subsequent stages, he’s committed fully as a domestique to Jumbo-Visma teammate Primoz Roglic in the high mountains, confirming his multiple talents and team loyalty.
