Sven Nys is thinking of turning his efforts to the road, specifically he would like to ride the spring classics in 2009 according to Het Laatste Nieuws . If the Belgian decides to make an attempt on the monuments of the sport, he will make the step from the Rabobank continental squad to a ProTour team.
Nys has been the dominant rider the past few years on the cyclo-cross scene but is thinking of expanding his horizons. "The cross is my first love, but my targets are gradually drying up," Nys said.
Nys is looking for new objectives in his sporting career. He recently qualified to represent Belgium at the Beijing Olympics in the mountain bike event, but the Cannibal wants more. Nys sees a spring classics campaign targeting races such as the Tour of Flanders and Paris Roubaix as the epitome of the sport.
Nys has previously ridden Paris Roubaix, in 2003 he was part of the Rabobank team but failed to finish the race.
If Nys decides to chase his dream, then he will leave the continental Rabobank team, and ride for a ProTour team. If he decides to stay with cyclo-cross, then he will remain with the Dutch squad, where he has a contract that runs until the end of 2008.
