Crelan-Charles is part of the Snipercycling project spearheaded by Nick Nuyens, former winner of the Tour of Flanders. The project combines Crelan-Charles, a word class cyclocross team, with Veranda’s Willems-Crelan, a Pro Continental road team. The unique structure allows riders to test their limits both on the road and on the cyclocross course.
Crelan-Charles' biggest star is Wout van Aert, who rode the perfect season at the young age of 21: In the 2015/2016 season he won the three big classifications (UCI World Cup, BPost Bank trofee, Superprestige) and won the Belgian and World Championships, too. In the 2016/2017 cyclocross season he almost repeated this incredible feat and won the World Championships as well as the UCI World Cup overall and the DVV Verzekeringen Trofee overall.
