History was made this Sunday on the dunes of Koksijde as Sven Nys proved that experience can triumph over youth. Nys earned his 50th Elite World Cup victory in a battle with Wout van Aert—19 years his junior—that was nothing short of riveting. Nys used van Aert’s flat tire to keep the young World Cup leader on the ropes, and waited for the perfect opportunity to make his move, passing van Aert right before the turn into the finishing pavement.
CXM contributor Bart Hazen, and former editor Andrew Reimann were on hand to capture all of the action in a battle that will go down in the ages. If you missed the Elite Men’s highlight video, do your self a favor and watch it ASAP!
