Ever since Toon Aerts won the European Championships in 2016, he is part of the absolute world class of elite CX riders. He went on to win classics like the GP Sven Nys in Baal, Niel, and Overijse, topping it off with an absolutely amazing victory on the cobbles of the Koppenberg. His consistency in the 2018-19 season led to a stunning overall victory in the UCI WorldCup which he repeated in 2019-2020. But within the Trek Family, his first ever World Cup win at the Factory in Waterloo will stay his most iconic Trek moment!
