After his disappointing performance in Tabor on Saturday, Sven Nys (Rabobank) has given his opponents a clear answer by winning the second event of the international Superprestige, in Sint-Michielsgestel, Holland. The big names of cyclo-cross had an additional challenge, after travelling from Tabor, Czech Republic to Holland in one night.

"I wasn't 100% just yet," Sven Nys reacted on his win on Belgian Sporza radio. "Just like everybody else, the trip from Tabor was still felt; I also had some back pains."

Nevertheless, it was clear that Sven Nys was the strongest man in today's race; the Belgian added, "Wellens already asked me to take over the lead after half a lap. When I accelerated something must've happened as I immediately got away."
