For 18 years Sven Nys has lived the life of the professional cyclo-crosser; he is a control freak who leaves nothing to chance, and an ascetic who survives solely on food, rest and cycling. This brand new documentary gives us the chance to witness at first hand Nys’ lifestyle and personal discipline for the very first time. Director Jan Vandermotte followed Nys’ every move for an entire year. The result is a unique chance to get into the head and the life of a true sports phenomenon.
SVEN – The Final Year premierd in Belgian cinemas in February of 2016, and was broadcast as a two-part documentary on Canvas.
