There is hope because Wout van Aert is on his feet again. Our compatriot shared a walk on his Strava account on Wednesday.

Van Aert covered almost 4 kilometers and took more than 5,000 steps from his home to the center of Herentals. “To stand still is to go backwards,” the Visma – Lease a Bike rider wrote.

As a reminder: Van Aert hit the asphalt hard last Wednesday in Dwars door Vlaanderen, on the N4 in the descent towards Kanarieberg. For an unclear reason, Van Aert appears to hit the wheel of teammate Tiesj Benoot, after which he slams heavily against the asphalt. He broke his collarbone, sternum and seven ribs. He will miss the rest of the spring. Van Aert went under the knife in the hospital in Herentals that same day. He was back home at Easter and his Instagram showed that a delicious meal was ready.

It is not yet clear when Van Aert could return to competition.
