First Look – Sven Nys’s 2011/2012 Kit

Here’s a first look at the kit that Sven Nys (former World Champion, eight-time Belgian National Champion, and winner of eight consecutive GvA Trofees, among many other honors) will be wearing for the 2011/2012 season.

Landboukredit’s green and gold is simple and straightforward, but we particularly like the Belgian tricolor striping throughout the kit – and, of course, the rainbow stripes signifying a World Champion.

About Whit

My experiences might easily fit many cycling fans' definitions of “living the dream.” Since getting hooked on the sport watching Lance Armstrong win the 1993 U.S. Pro Championship, I've raced as an amateur on Belgian cobbles, traveled Europe to help build a European pro team, and piloted that team from Malaysia to Mont Ventoux. As a former assistant director sportif with Mercury-Viatel, I've also seen the less dreamy side of the sport – the side rife with broken contracts, infighting, and positive dope tests. These days, I live with my lovely wife in Pennsylvania and share my experiences and views on the sport at Bicycling Magazine, the Embrocation Cycling Journal, and at my own site, Pavé.
