A few hours ago it was confirmed that Van der Poel will definitely not be at the CX World Championships in Fayetteville, USA. And now it is the Belgian Wout van Aert who also announces that he will not be there. With this news, everything is now in Pidcock's way to achieve his first World Championship in the discipline.

Wout van Aert will not be at the 2022 Cyclo-cross World Championships either

The UCI decided to celebrate this year's CX World Championships in the USA to try to expand the audience of the sport, among other things. But in the end, the two most important riders of the moment will not be there. Van der Poel will not be able to attend due to his back problems and Van Aert has just confirmed that he will not be there either, in order to focus on the road events.

Rumours had been circulating for weeks that the Belgian would not travel to the USA and it was at the Herentals Trophy, which he had just won, that he was asked directly if the rumours were true, the answer was clear: "It's true".

"Cyclocross is really important to me, and my form is really good, but at this point in my career I'm also focusing on other things." "Our goal is to win a monument in the spring. I missed it in previous years."
"We think it's better to finish my CX season after Sunday (with the Belgian national championships) and then focus on road racing."

With this news, things are looking very good for British rider Tom Pidcock to try to achieve the triple crown that nobody has achieved yet and that was Van der Poel's dream.
