Twenty years after the triumph of Sven Nys in Silvelle, his son Thibau took the Junior European title after an exciting head-to-head with fellow Belgian Michels
The generations change but the Nys family is destined to inflame the international cyclo-cross competitions for many years to come. Twenty years after the triumph of Sven Nys in Silvelle di Trebaseleghe (Padua, Veneto, Northern Italy) in a historical Superprestige round, his son Thibau took the Men’s Junior title at the 2019 UEC European Cyclo-cross Championships.
The talented Belgian rider crossed the finish line in first place ahead of fellow Belgian Jente Michels (+9”), after an exciting head-to-head, as Swiss Dario Lillo clinched third (+1’10”).
The programme of the 2019 European Championships continues with the U23 Women’s race.
