Double win for Trek's new cyclo-cross bike

Sven Nys wins, GP Sven Nys 2014

Cyclo-cross world champion Sven Nys and Katie Compton won their respective races at the GP Sven Nys on New Year's Day aboard Trek's new Boone cyclo-cross bikes.

Nys (Crelan-AA Drink) switched to Trek's new machine after a career-long association with Colnago bikes and immediatley took an impressive solo win in his 'home' race. Zdenek Stybar (Omega Pharma) placed second, with Niels Albert (BKCP-Powerplus) in third.

Earlier, Compton (Trek) had won the women's race after a dual with Marianne Vos (Rabobank). British riders Nikki Harris (Telenet-Fidea) and Helen Wyman (Kona) placed third and fourth.

The Boone features a carbon fibre OCLV frameset incorporating Trek's IsoSpeed decoupler, which is essentially a micro suspension unit affording a degree of comfort. Both Compton and Nys have hydraulic disc brakes installed on their Boone machines.

The Trek Boone 5 is available to British customers for £2400 and includes Shimano 105 groupset, Bontrager wheels and Avid BB5 mechanical disc brakes.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
