‘Super-emotional’ Van Baarle steps out of the shadow of leaders: Léon van Bon has a successor after 24 years | World Cycling Championships

Even if Dylan van Baarle has cycled into the final of a World Cup, he first looks at others. Nature of the beast. So when the leading group of 17 riders with top favorites is on their way to Leuven, he will ride next to Mathieu van der Poel. ,,At 30 kilometers from the finish, Dylan came to ask if he should close gaps for me”, says Van der Poel about the chat. ,,Then I said that I would rather Dylan, if he felt good, jumped with groups. We had more use for that. He did that perfectly. I didn’t want to ask him either. He has already won Dwars door Vlaanderen. I knew he could do it and Dylan did it perfectly. Nice huh.”
