Does Mathieu Van der Poel use a power meter?

I’ve been extremely impressed on how well Van der Poel has raced in MTB, CX and this Spring classics season. He’s an incredible talent.

What’s been interesting to me is that I cannot spot a power meter on any of his bikes (Aeroad, Lux, Inflite). I’ve looked at several pictures of all bikes. Does MVDP use a power meter???

Yes

Road - yes.
CX - sometimes.


(Jingle Cross bike w/ PM attachment)

He’s using the shimano DA PM from what I’ve seen

Of course he does. How would he win races without one?
