Sven Nys To Leave Rabobank | BikeRadar.com
Cyclocross star Sven Nys is set to change teams after spending a decade with the Dutch Rabobank squad. The Belgian will join Landbouwkrediet-Tönissteiner for three years from January 1, 2009 and is hoping the move will open up opportunities to race on the road in 2010.
“Finally, Sven has chosen the option which he said offered the best opportunities and safeguards with regards to sport, and not the most attractive proposition in financial matters,” said Nys’ manager Bob Verbeeck.
The offer from Landbouwkrediet-Tönissteiner, which was one of three options the Belgian considered, came after Filip Meirhaeghe introduced Nys to the team’s management. Nys, who has won the cyclo-cross World Cup on multiple occasions, had also considered staying at Rabobank for yet another year, while his third option was to build his own team around himself.
