Mathieu van der Poel has acknowledged that he has had to change his racing style, suggesting that spectacular long-range efforts like his attack at last year’s Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne might be a thing of the past.

The Dutchman’s approach was more measured this spring, most notably at the Tour of Flanders, where he withstood Tadej Pogačar’s onslaught on the Oude Kwaremont and Paterberg before outfoxing him in the sprint.
