Sven Nys will leave the cold, damp weather of his native land for the sunny skies of the Mallorca islands for three weeks. Nys departed Belgium for the Spanish island after winning in Gavere and Hasselt. The Belgian will fly back to Belgium for the World Cup in Koksijde this weekend before returning to his training holiday to prepare for the second part of the season. Due to the cancellation of the World Cup in Milan, the Belgian is able to insert this training holiday in his program. Likely Nys' good friend and former team-mate Sven Vanthourenhout will join the UCI-leader to Mallorca.
