In the absence of most top riders, Mathieu van der Poel (BKCP-Powerplus) found no opposition at the Scheldecross in Antwerp, Belgium on Saturday afternoon. On the fast sand course along the Schelde river the 19-year-old Dutchman won solo ahead of surprisingly strong 20-year-old Laurens Sweeck (Corendon-Kwadro) and Tom Meeusen (Telenet-Fidea).
