Need your cyclocross fix to kick off the (hopefully shortened) work week?
The Telenet Baloise Lions cyclocross team has a new Youtube channel, and its first video of a new team rider features 2020 Junior World Champion Thibau Nys, son of living legend and team boss Sven Nys.
Sven Nys comments in the video on the unique situation of being both boss and father to the now-U23 racer. “In fact, in this situation, I have to be very careful because I certainly don’t want to favor Thibau over other riders and I try to impose that discipline on myself. He is still my child, and it’s a sensitive situation. I try my best, but I’m only human.”
Favoritism or not, Thibau Nys is featured first in the team’s promo video of riders, and it’s a well-done video complete with some brief but stunning aerial footage of a sand workout and barrier hopping.
