I actually discuss this question a lot because I am sitting on the UCI Cyclocross Commission. We may be just a small cycling discipline, but one thing that would really help is to allow points earned in cyclocross to be counted in some way as WorldTour points for road teams. If cyclocross riders could bring points to the road teams then more major teams would be interested in hiring cyclocross riders, I would think.
Cyclocross is definitely growing, but what can the UCI do to make cyclocross more successful on a global level?
You won just about every race there is to win. Does any victory stand out?
You actually rode for many years on the Rabobank team.
Yes, back then we would ride the road program in the summer and then in the winter there were two or three of us that had our own little cyclocross team with our own mechanics and soigneurs. Now in Belgium, there are entire teams devoted only to cyclo cross.
Sven Nys: Yeah, it sort of true. The competition is just so high and then the hype around cyclocross here in Belgium is just crazy! For our sponsors and fans, it is almost as important to win Converse Shoes Collection the Belgian title as the world title. And then the depth of competition in Belgium in recent years is such that it is almost harder to win the national title than the world title.

national title is more important to you than the World Championship title?
For one, we have a lot of the best races here. Then the generation that you see dominating today learned a lot from the old guys before them, because there is a long tradition. And then there is the money, because here, cyclocross attracts very good sponsors. In the last 10 years, Belgian riders know they can make a good living in cyclocross. As a result, some very talented cyclists just plain choose cyclocross over road racing.
I guess one that is really special for me is the Koppenberg cyclocross race at the beginning of every season. I have won it nine times and I have Men Converse
Actually it is getting easier because I have the experience and I have more power than when I was younger. And mentally I Converse New Arrival
am stronger. I mean I have won everything so I don have the pressure to win. Don get me wrong, it always great to win. But if I come away empty handed at the end of a race it is not the end of the world. I don get nervous anymore. I just really relaxed in every race I go into. I can honestly say that I enjoy racing more now than when I was younger.
