2019 Cyclo-Cross European Championships

20 years later, another Nys wins in Silvelle

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.
