'This is scandalous': beer thrown and booed by Van der Poel, who then laughs with 'heavy rain'

'This is scandalous': beer thrown and booed by Van der Poel, who then laughs with 'heavy rain'

“illogical!” The anger between commentators Karl Vaniwokerke and José de Cauer was great. Some 'fans' distorted Mathieu van der Poel's passing at the Oude Kwaremont by throwing beer and shouting boos. After that, the Dutchman replied with a smile: “I was so focused that it didn’t matter much to me.” The police will prepare reports against the perpetrators.

When will some fans learn?

During the cyclocross in Holst, beer throwers marred Mathieu van der Poel's victory and the bad trend was also evident in the Tour of Flanders.

At the Oude Kwaremont, some felt it necessary to throw full cups at the Dutchman. Or to make fun of the eventual winner. Fortunately, many also treated the world champion as a guard of honor.

There has been some heavy rain on the Oude Kwaremont.

Van der Poel was then asked about the incident at Sporza's studio.

“There's been some heavy rain on the Oude Kwaremont,” he replied with a wink. “But I was so focused that it didn't matter to me.”

On the MVDP side, analyst Jan Bakelants was more pointed: “It's shameful that people come for this. Then they stay at home.”

There is a possibility that the perpetrators will not escape unpunished. Police will prepare reports against the beer drinkers and hope to identify them based on available TV images.
