Wout Van Aert (Vastgoedservice-Golden Palace) won a second consecutive Poldercross in Kruibeke on Saturday after winning the Belgian race last year.
Michael Vanthourenhout (Sunweb-Napoleon Games) finished second, followed by Laurens Sweeck (Cibel-ERA). Sven Nys (Crelan-Euphony) finished seventh after fighting his way back from two early mechanicals.
Van Aaert and Vanthourenhout rode away from a six-rider group with about four laps remaining, but Vanthourenhout couldn’t hold the World Cup leader’s pace and trailed in across the finish eight seconds in arrears.
