Wout Van Aert’s new contract with Jumbo-Visma will reportedly elevate him into the top-10 highest earners in the pro peloton and the Belgian has ambitions to match, confirming he will target the Classics, the Tour de France, Olympics and the World Championships in Belgium during the 2021 season.

After spending the week at the Jumbo-Visma training camp in Spain, Van Aert has returned to Belgium for a weekend of cyclo-cross before next week’s World Championships in Ostend, where he will again face off against eternal rival Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix).
