Following the 2021 World Cycling Championships in Belgium, Wout van Aert was not happy with national team-mate Remco Evenepoel's tactical choices in the elite men's road race, and the comments he made afterwards on TV. 

Evenepoel criticised Belgium national coach Sven Vanthourenhout, claiming that the tactics before the race were unclear, which is why he chose to attack so early on in the race. However, van Aert has expressed his annoyance with these claims on Sporza's cycling podcast De Tribune.
