Middle rank in the cyclo-cross field in men



Now that the road season is approaching the end and cyclocross is increasingly coming forward, it's bundling Flash Cycling weekly in one overview of the standings in the three most important cross categories: World Cup, Superprestige, and DVV Insurance Cup. In men's Toon Aerts had a good start to the season and Mathieu van der Poel was undefeated.

World Cup
After three rounds at the World Cup, Aerts is a rather surprising leader. The Belgian won two crosses on American soil and also on the podium in Bern. At the cross of the first World Cup where Van der Poel was present, the European champions also went straight to victory. The stage is the same as SP-cross Casting: Van der Poel, Van Aert, Aerts. With his victory, Van der Poel is just not in the top 20, 22.

In the stands for the World Cup, the top three will be given 80, 70 and 65 points. Numbers four (60), five (55) and six (50) also receive many points. Figures seven to eleven get 48, 46, 44, 42 and 40 points. Then return one point per place.

Super Prestige
After three rounds, Superprestige only has one winner: Mathieu van der Poel. At SP-cross Gieten he settled with world champions, Van Aert and Aerts. Di Boom, that is Aerts and Gianni Vermeersch whom he referred to other podium places. Van Aert crossed the cross from Boom. In SP-cross at Ruddervoorde we have the same podium as in Gieten: Van der Poel for the Belgians Van Aert and Aerts. Van der Poel was clearly also leading the Superprestige ranking, followed by Aerts and Lars van der Haar.

Scores on Superprestige are very easy, fifteen points for winners and one point less for lower positions, up to and including number fifteen.

DVV Insurance Cup
In the first round of the DVV Insurance Trophy it became clear that Mathieu van der Poel could also be defeated. What's called, MVDP is 21 in just four minutes. The victory went to Toon Aerts, who showed himself the strongest on Koppenberg's sides. The second place is for Michael Vanthourenhout, before World Champion Wout van Aert.

The classification in the DVV Insurance Trophy is made on the basis of time, same as the classification in the stage race. The only addition to this is that you can lose a maximum of five minutes. Not starting on the cross also produces a five minute malus.
