Re: The Mathieu Van der Poel Appreciation Thread
« on: June 25, 2017, 17:10 »
Mathieu Van der Poel is 4th at the World Championship in Singen, 2'42" behind Alban Lakata. Tiago Ferreira and Daniel Geismayr are 2nd and 3rd.

The Walloon Sébastien Carabin is only 18th.  :(

Mathieu is probably very disappointed at the moment but as such it's a great result in a category that should be less suited to him than "cross country" (although I guess the field is also stronger in cross-country, am I wrong?).
