Wout van Aert is in Scotland, and has uploaded a training ride to Strava completed in Stirling on Friday.

In a file titled ‘Showing off the moustache to the highlanders’, the Belgian rode a little over 64km through the countryside west of the city. The area will host the time trial events at the upcoming UCI Road World Championships, which will be spread out across the south of Scotland this August.
