Belgian cyclo-cross racer Thibau Nys (Baloise Trek Lions) will be back in action three weeks after breaking his collarbone in a crash at the UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup in Waterloo, making his comeback at the Koppenbergcross on November 1.

Nys, 18, was due to compete in the full slate of 'cross races in North America last week before his crash in the opening laps of the opening round on October 10. He instead flew back to Belgium, underwent surgery, and was quickly back on the indoor trainer.
