Wout van Aert hoping for fewer Classics placings but ‘one big fish’ in 2023

A shaper outline of Wout van Aert‘s 2023 schedule has now emerged as the Jumbo-Visma star confirmed this week that he will be focusing hard on the steadily shrinking handful of top Classics that still elude him.

Van Aert took a hugely impressive array of placings and victories in one-day races in 2022, including Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and the E3 Saxo Bank Classicas well as a second place in Paris-Roubaix and a third place in Liège-Bastogne-Liège. This was despite catching COVID mid-way through the spring and missing out on the Tour of Flanders as a result.
