News Shorts: Bad luck costs Nys in Zonhoven


Bad luck costs Nys in Zonhoven

Sven Nys started his weekend having to fight back from two mechanicals in the early going of Poldercross-Kruibeke on Saturday, eventually making his way back to the leaders but fading to seventh at the finish.

Sunday during round 2 of the SuperPrestige series in Zonhoven, a puncture in the final lap cost Nys a chance for second from a group that included Rob Peeters, Kevin Pauwels and Lars van der Haar.

“I had something left to fight for second place but lost pressure so I couldn’t take risks in the corners, and if I would’ve switched bikes then Lars would’ve passed me,” he said.

Nys was able to hold off Van der Haar to finish fourth. In his post-race interview, he took time to praise winner Wout Van Aert as being head and shoulders above the rest.

“I figured Wout would win as there was a lot of running today. If there’s something Wout is extremely good at, it’s running. We’ll see if the tide turns. If you can ride away by a minute seemingly in a playful manner then you can say you’re the best.”
