Sven Nys, who is due to retire at the end of the 2015/2016 ‘cross season, is a cyclocross legend. Although he’s taken just 2 world titles (can ‘just’ really apply to the quantity of world titles won?), he has won nearly every other ‘cross race there is to win, likely several times.
This year, he’s racing on board a fleet of neon yellow Trek Boones – some with discs, some without, some with single rings, some with a double chainset. In this profile we take a look at one of his ‘standard’, go-to machines; that is, one of the bikes with a double chainset and discs.
