Belgian Wout van Aert arrived at the snowy Val di Sole circuit directly from Belgium, where yesterday he won another CX race in Essen. Yesterday mud and today snow, but the result was the same. Van Aert is a step above the rest and took another comfortable victory in the Val di Sole World Cup.

Wout van Aert wins the World Cup in Val di Sole with a great performance

When some doubted his performance on the snowy terrain, the Belgian champion never seemed to doubt his chances. From the second lap, Van Aert launched a solo attack that allowed him to reach the finish line as the winner, almost 50 seconds ahead of his compatriot Michael Vanthourenhout, who was second.

Britain's Tom Pidcock put in a better performance than just a week ago and made a great comeback to make it onto the podium, almost a minute and a half behind. In fact, the feeling that Pidcock left was that he could soon be fighting for the victory.

World Cup overall leader Eli Iserbyt was fourth at 1:44 minutes, which means he still leads the competition. 

In the women's race, Dutchwoman Fem van Empel achieved her first World Cup victory ahead of the big favourite Marianne Vos and Canadian Maghalie Rochet.
