After suffering a mechanical issue and finishing fourth at the weekend's UCI World Cup round in Hulst, Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) got back to winning ways at the X2O Trofee to take a hometown victory in Herentals.

The Belgian ticked off his eighth win in nine races so far this season, racing to a solo victory having ridden away from his rivals on the second lap of nine. Van Aert left both Toon Aerts (Baloise Trek Lions) and Tom Pidcock (Ineos Grenadiers) behind, the trio having separated themselves from the rest of the field early on.
