Nys racing despite injury

Rabobank cyclocrosser Sven Nys will be participating in this weekend's races even though he injured his right hip in a fall at the World Championships in Zeddam, last Sunday. Although he could only train properly on Thursday and Friday, the Belgian doesn't want to give up on his lead in the Gazet van Antwerpen Trofee, of which the Krawaten Cross on Saturday, February 4 is round #6.

"I'm starting in Lille, even though I'm still in pain," Nys told Belgian newswires. "I don't want to just give away my leadership in the GVA Trofee." Nys still heads the series with 25 points ahead of Bart Wellens.
