Saxo Bank's Nuyens to ride cautiously towards classics

Nick Nuyens

Saxo Bank's new classics leader, Belgian Nick Nuyens will take the cautious route to the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix next spring. At the team's camp last week, he decided to skip Belgium's season openers, Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne.

"Maybe it is surprising that I will not race the opening weekend," Nuyens told Belgium's Sporza TV. "Instead, I attend a training camp. This way we will avoid risks, such as illness. Last year, was a bad experience."
