Thibau Nys will have imagined something different from the first WB-cross in Waterloo. The European promise champion on the road already fell in the second round and gave up. A collarbone fracture was diagnosed at the hospital. “I’ll be back,” Nys assured Instagram.
Thibau Nys was one of the two Belgian promises selected for the World Cup cyclocross in the United States. Confident in his top results on the road, Nys also got off to a good start in Waterloo.
But things went wrong for Nys in the second round. Due to the light rain in Waterloo, a piece of asphalt on the course had become very slippery. Nys was one of the riders who went down and came into contact with the nadar.
Nys was unable to continue and had to give up. In the hospital, the dreaded diagnosis was also established: a collarbone fracture.
