Sven Leaves Rabobank

And I'm NOT kidding this time. Sven is moving to Landbouwkrediet-Töissteiner as of January 1, 2009. Per Sven's new team:
On a press conference today in the building of our main sponsor Landbouwkrediet, it has been officially announced that cyclo-cross rider Sven Nys will join our team in 2009. He will wear our green jersey for the first time in his home grand prix in Baal on New Year's day. We wish Sven, who is the reigning Belgian champion and the number one on the world ranking of cyclo-cross, a lot of success!
Sven'll be on his trusted C50 still as his new team are also a Colnago sponsored crew. Isn't that convenient.

hi Greg
found this in het nieuwsblad about Svens new manager Mr Gerard bulens

De 32-jarige Nys komt terecht bij manager Gerard Bulens. Die zette in 1989 zijn eerste stappen in de wielersport met een ploeg veldrijders waarin Danny De Bie meteen wereldkampioen werd. Later passeerden andere kampioenen als Radomir Simunek en Paul Herygers de revue bij Bulens.

roughly translated
mr bulens started his first team in cyclocross back in 89 with
Danny De Bie who immediatly became
worldchampion ,later on some other champions as Radomir Simunek and Paul herygers signed on in his team

I can't remeber the name of that team but seams to me sven made a good choise of manager
