Three-time UCI Cyclo-cross World Champion and 2019 Tour de France stage winner Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) appears to be on good form as the Belgian prepares to make his 2020 road season debut this weekend at the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad on Saturday.

Van Aert, who last raced on the road at the 2019 Tour before he abandoned the race after crashing in the stage 13 time trial, has been training in Tenerife, Spain, and recently stole a Strava KOM on the Spanish Island from four-time Tour de France champion Chris Froome (Team Ineos).
