Cyclocross: SP Gieten - Mathieu van der Poel wins in thrilling finale, Sanne Cant 1st in women's race



Indead it was thrilling: van der Poel and van Aert early isolated from the peloton, Laurens Sweeck unsuccessfully chasing. 
In spite of a crash on the barriers and some little mistakes, van der Poel looked the strongest... but he couldn't really distance van Aert. In the last lap, at the true last corner van Aert's chain dropped and van der Poel sprinted solo across the line.
Lars van der Haar isn't 100% yet. He raced at the back and finished 10. There is plenty of time to improve!
In the women's race Sanne Cant wins :)

Lars van der Haar:
"10th today in SP Gieten. Satisfied with that result. From here on I can build my form up. And hopefully be back in top three end of month! Especially want to thank all the people here at the race who cheered me on! Really helped a lot. And I loved it. ;-) thanks!!"

Klaas Vantornout:
"Feeling good and happy with 6th place after a bad start @SuperprestigeCX #Gieten. What a race of @mathieuvdpoel congrats"
