Previewing the 2018 GP Sven Nys

December 31, 2017

Happy New Year from RideCX! The new year brings the debut of riders on new teams, new sponsors, and new kits at tomorrow's GP Sven Nys, January 1, 2018. GP Sven Nys is part of the DVV Trofee Series (formerly BPost Bank Trofee) and takes place annually in Baal, Belgium, the hometown of retired superstar Sven Nys. 

So how much of a legend do you have to be in order to have the race named after yourself? God-like status: Nys had a career that crossed into 3 decades and was remarkably consistent - during that time he won an amazing 2 World Champion rainbow jerseys, 9 national championships, the overall cyclocross World Cup 6 times, the Superprestige 13 times, 8 times the BPost / DVV series, and if that wasn't enough, 5 national titles in mountain biking too! 

But perhaps his most remarkable feat was winning an unbelievable 50 individual World Cup races. Year after year he kept winning, after most other riders his age had long since retired.

Tune in tomorrow to ring in the New Year with some cyclocross as the athletes chasing the legend, Sven Nys, compete in the race that bears his name:
