Cyclocross champion Wout van Aert finished second place at the Jingle Cross World Cup in Iowa, US last Saturday, being edged out by Toon Aerts (Telenet Fidea) after a mistake on lap six of the second World Cup race of the season.
After Mathieu van der Poel switched to Canyon bikes earlier this year, van Aert took on the Stevens Super Prestige framesets that were formally used by the Dutchman.
Van Aert’s mechanic at the Jingle Cross event said the stock frameset is temporary and that when the cyclocross World Cup returns to Europe later this month van Aert will use a custom-painted frameset commemorating his world championship title.
Previously riding a Felt frameset, van Aert retains the SRAM and Zipp components, and finishing kit and wheels used on last season’s bike.
