We reported recently on Sven Nys and Bart Wellens (Telenet-Fidea) pounding their mountain bike pedals into podium spots in Belgium’s National Cup series, but are sad to say that neither was able to crown himself the MTB King of Belgium. At the title race in Malmady, Nys crashed hard on a tricky descent – it is unclear whether he broke his body or his bike in the process, but either way he was forced to abandon the event. Wellens met a similar fate, crashing out partway through the race. Tom Meeusen (Telenet-Fidea), though reportedly having a bad day, nonetheless managed a respectable fourth place finish in the U23 race. Let’s hope everyone heals up before the start of ’cross!
