Albert considers 2016 Olympics

New World Cyclo-cross Champion Niels Albert will consider riding the mountain bike events at the 2016 Olympic Games. In the meantime though, he said he has only just begun to realise what he accomplished on Sunday.

As for mountain biking: "It is not something I can see myself doing immediately," he told hln.be. "The London Olympics (2012) come too early, but the Games of 2016 offer me a possible goal."

On Wednesday he will ride the 'cross in Maldegem. On Thursday, he turns 23 and "I could not have dreamed of a more beautiful birthday present."(SW)
