Sven Nys' coach is already making specific training plans for the Beijing Olympic Games. "On March 31 Sven will start his preparations for the Games. His first pick is planned for the mountain bike European championships in Saint Wendel," Paul Van den Bosch told Sporza.be.
"After that there are two big competitions on the agenda: The World Cup in Fort William and the World Championships," he said. "July and August will be entirely dominated by specific training and adaptation to the extreme heat."
"The signs are now all pointing in the same direction: direction east. Hopefully we will return at the end of August satisfied: direction west."
