According to reports in the Belgian press, cyclo-cross ace Sven Nys may be leaving his Rabobank team for another squad next season, and is supposedly facing a choice between remaining at Rabobank or moving to the Sunweb ProJob or Landbouwkrediet-Tönissteiner squads. Newspaper Het Laaste Nieuws has reported that Nys will move to Landbouwkrediet, although an official communication from the team confirmed its interest in the rider, but denied that a contract had been signed.

"I have signed for no one and also not given my word," Nys told SportWereld. "Landbouwkrediet-Tönissteiner, Sunweb ProJob and my present employer Rabobank are the teams from which I will choose. My manager has spoken with everybody and is now waiting to hear how Rabobank will react. The decision can still go each of these ways."

"I am just back from a holiday in Jamaica with the family," he added. "And on Sunday we depart for Austria to go skiing. It will be at least two weeks before a decision is made."
