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.
