Thibau Nys is forced to go against Van der Poel and...

Before this cross season, he dreamed of competing with the big names in cyclocross a few times. Thibau Nys can, however, prepare for almost a complete season with the elite. Out of necessity, that’s how it sounds The last news.

The only 17-year-old Nys, son of Sven Nys, would actually play a lot of games with the U23 this season. However, the Belgian corona measures ensure that almost all crosses for U23 and juniors have to be scrapped until further notice. If Nys wants to compete, he must already make the step to the highest level, where it is still allowed to ride. Fortunately for Nys, he drives at Telenet Baloise Lions and therefore has the right to start.

‘I am already very happy that we can race’, says Nys junior, who realizes that it will soon be very difficult to finish high in a field with Mathieu van der Poel and Wout van Aert. ‘Without exclusive U23 crosses, it is difficult to collect UCI points, climb up in the world ranking and thus obtain a better starting position. That makes it very difficult between the pros. Even demotivating at times. Last Saturday, in Ruddervoorde, I had to start from the sixth row. And it was difficult to win positions with 89 riders. ‘

Thibau Nys: ‘I have to come out stronger’

Still, he goes for it, because Nys sees riding with the elite as a great opportunity. He finished in the top-10 once this season, fifth in Kruibeke. That tastes like more. In addition, the X20 Trophy does keep a U23 time classification for elite competitions. ‘Fighting against the world top every weekend, fighting for your place from the first to the last minute, pure survival: I just have to come out stronger here. I’m convinced of that.’ (photo: Eurosport screenshot)
