On Sunday, nearly everybody in the cyclocross world saw the viral video of Sven Nys nearly riding, and then completely riding up a set of stairs during the Cat 4/5 race at the Chicago Cross Cup opening weekend.
If you missed it, here is the video again:

Cyclocross Magazine is on site at the Johnson County Fairgrounds, and we caught up with Sven Nys at his Telenet Fidea team’s tent. We chatted with the Belgian legend about his viral sensation and his post-retirement role as a high-flying ambassador of cyclocross.
Stay tuned to Cyclocross Magazine throughout the weekend for coverage from Iowa City.
