Cyclo-cross World Champion Sven Nys is feeling better after the impaired balance he was experiencing on Tuesday has not returned later in the week. The Belgian has been able to train "without problems" and is looking forward to competing in Ruddervoorde, Belgium, this Sunday for the first round of the Superprestige Series, which he won last season.
"On Tuesday, it didn't look good," Nys said. "I got up and felt dizzy so bad that I almost fell. I had to lie down again. I was in bed all day, but I could eat so it wasn't the 'flu. The doctor gave me some medicine that immediately took effect. But the question is where this feeling of dizziness came from - it's a signal from my body, but what?"
The Rabobank rider will get a blood test next week.
