This beautifully filmed video will appeal to both cyclocross addicts and the uninitiated. As the title says, it’s the tale of Sven Nys’s last year of a stunning competitive career. It tells the story of an athlete, who at the age of 39 wants one more final year competing at the pinnacle of his sport. Racing against those significantly younger, was never going to be easy. As if that wasn’t hard enough, he is also trying to over come the aftermath of a divorce. The film gives the viewer an insight to how he worked with his coach and confidents, to move forward. Moments of self doubt and heart felt difficulty, show he’s only human but like a phoenix he rises from the flame and gets his reward.
This film will move your soul and for all those cross fans out there, send a shiver down your spine. I’m sitting in sunny France writing this but even I thought “Come on bring on the mud”! What a fantastic hour and 38 minutes entertainment to rock your soul. It’s available on Vimeo on Demand. https://vimeo.com/ondemand/sven/182956406
