Styby wins the ‘Boonen & Friends Charity Cyclocross’
Zdenek has won the Charity Cyclocross of Tom Boonen. In Mol, Belgium, our Czech champion had to start one minute behind the other riders, because of his cyclocross skills. But again, no one was able to stay ahead of him. “It was not easy”, he said afterwards.
Like last year, there were again some big names at the start of the charity cyclocross. Tom Boonen, the organizer, was there, just as Jan Bakelants, Thomas De Gendt and Niki Terpstra. They had a lead of one minute on our experienced rider.
But that was not enough. “Yet it was not easy. I had to switch my bike and then had a lot of trouble to get Maarten Wynants. In the last lap I was able to catch him and in the sand I could shake him off. It was fun to be a part of this charity cyclocross again.”
Wynants became second and Pieter Vanspeybrouck third. Next week Zdenek is going to take part in the trainingscamp of Omega Pharma-Quick Step. “And after that I will start at the cyclocross in Essen on december 21st. I’m not sure which races I will ride later this season.”
