“I’m enjoying myself with the team and I definitely do not intend to say goodbye cyclocross anytime soon,” Van Aert said in a statement.

“There were a few stumbling blocks during the negotiations. I am particularly pleased that discussions around this before the Belgian Championships Sunday. Also, the sponsors Crelan and Vastgoedservice provide me with some extra confidence.”

“We are very happy to be able to keep Wout for an extra year,” said team managers Geert Vanhoof and Timmy Simons. “After his performances of last winter he deserved some amendments to his contact. Wout is the Belgian and World Champion and he won all consistency criteria. To perform even better is impossible.”

Van Aert recently tasted success on the road, winning the Baloise Belgium Tour prologue and wearing the leader’s jersey for two stages.
