Do you know something about Wout Van Aert??

I really wanna see him this year fighting against the big boys. I've read that he will skip Het Volk, he is preparing Roubax and De Ronde. However, I've also seen him in some startlists for tomorrow.

----

Btw... Will Lutsenko fly tomorrow like last week?  ;D ;D

Lutsenko has a good form, that is for sure.
But I m still in doubt if I will pick him, he might take it easy and just help one of his teammates to get a good result.
About Wout van Aert ;
I just know he prepared himself better this season for all the upcoming cobblestone races (he skipped some cyclocrosses, his speciality).
And he will be the team captain in his not so good team.
I really don't know what to expect of him , but he is for sure a great 23yo talent. Perhaps he is still too young to ride a finale, because the competition is experienced and fierce.

Het Volk is the old name of Omloop het Nieuwsblad, so your information is not correct because he will ride that race, like you noticed already.
But it could also be that you read that his focus is on the more important races Roubaix and Vlaanderen, and he just uses this race to see how he is compared to the competition.

I know him, I was just asking about skipping tomorrows' race.

Because in Zweeler they deleted him a few days ago. However they have just add him again today.

Dennis wins stage 4, the time trial. And he is the new GC leader. Tomorrow the important final stage to Jebel Hafeet, a difficult climb.

CFF League stage 4 winner = Thorin   8)
I'm still the GC leader, but that will change after the final stage.
