Van Aert returns to the bike and points to the Paris-Roubaix of 2020

The Dutchman, after suffering a terrible accident in the last Tour that ruined his season, recognized the tour of the French classic with his teammates.


Wout Van Aert (25 years old) saw his season ruined in 2019 due to a terrible accident produced during the individual time trial of the Tour de France. Because of a poorly positioned fence, the Jumbo-Visma corridor suffered a deep cut in his leg, at the height of the hip, which forced him to go through the emergency room and think about a recovery that is already beginning to give his first results

Y is that the Dutchman has returned to ride the bicycle in a training of the highest demand, neither more nor less than recognizing the route of the Paris-Roubaix for the 2020 edition. In case there were doubts about his physical condition , Van Aert evidenced his remarkable improvement through the toughest cobblestones of the test, such as those of the famous Carrefour l'Arbre, along with his companions Mike Teunissen, Maarten Wynants and Amund Grøndahl Jansen.

Without a doubt, completing this training session in a satisfactory way will be an important confidence injection for Wout, since in addition the conditions were very hard, with cold and a lot of mud that even stuck the car of the Jumbo-Visma team, just as they reflected the publications of the Dutch squad in their social networks. With these steps forward, Van Aert will once again be a serious candidate for victory in Roubaix after his good role this year, despite the fact that the forces abandoned him 25 km from the end when he was with the best.

Judicial victory

It should be noted that this week began with a good footing for Van Aert, since the Dutchman won the court case against Nick Nuyens, manager of his former Verandas Willems-Crelan team, who claimed him 1,110,000 euros in damages after Van Aert terminates his contract with that squad. The Court determined that there were urgent reasons for the corridor to leave the workforce, since he learned of the merger with the Dutch team Roompot-Nederlandse Loterij "five minutes before the official statement was sent" .
