Video: Mathieu Van der Poel playing on his new Canyon

Mathieu Van der Poel got his 2018 campaign off to a successful start, winning the DVV Trophy round in Baal on his first official outing on his new Canyon Inflite CF SLX .

Of course this wasn’t really the first time Van der Poel had ridden the bike – footage has emerged of him training in the sand of Calpe, bedding in the new bikes!

Watch below Mathieu run you through his new build (in Dutch!) and catch a glimpse of some of his impressive skills in training in the sand!
