Make Sure Sven Nys Comes to Louisville
When Louisville, Kentucky was awarded the 2013 Cyclocross World Championships, American cyclocross fans exploded with joy and excitement of seeing the worlds best racers battling it out for the rainbow jersey on American soil for the first time ever. All of the worlds top riders will head to Evan Banman Park on February 2nd and 3rd for their shot at the most coveted jersey in the sport. After the announcement, many riders expressed their happiness and desire to race in America. Naturally, American cross fans were excited that they would get to see the greatest cyclocross racer ever, Sven Nys race in the United States…or so we thought.
After a lackluster performance at the 2012 World Championships, Nys expressed his thoughts and feelings on his lack of success at worlds. This culminated with a truly disappointing statement from Nys: “It might have been the last one I rode. It’s probably a bit too early to say something like this but if I look at it now I feel like saying that.” This is where we come in. The Americans 4 Nys is a group of people who feel that Nys should race one more World Championship.
Americans 4 Nys is launching a “petition” expressing our desire for the greatest cyclocross racer ever to come to America for the first time and race the 2013 World Championships in Louisville. It would be a great shame and disappointment to the second largest cross nation if he were not to race in the first ever cyclocross World Championships held outside of Europe. By siging this “petition,” you’re showing your support for the “Cannibal from Baal” to come to the United States, for one last World Championship. Please, show your support for the legend that is Sven Nys and help us assure that he doesn’t skip this event.
