Zdenek was elected as Czech cyclist of the year. For the second time in a row already. “It’s been a very good year for Czech cycling with a lot of victories. Therefore, I am very glad I won this title again and I can take home this trophy.”
With victories in the Strade Bianche and a stage in the Tour de France this year Styby did indeed excellent. “But I have to do better than this. I really want to win a monument. That is my goal for next year and the years that follow.”
After the ceremony Zdenek flew to Belgium, where he takes part in tomorrows ‘Boonen & Friends’ in Mol, a cyclocross for charity with his teammate Tom Boonen as initiator. But what about other cyclocross-races?
“I love cyclocross and so I’d like to race a few. The team has no problems with that. Which races I will be riding, I still do not know. My program was already in a few papers, but that info is not correct. I have not spoken to any organizer of a race.”
A decision fill follow next week. “When I know that I will do some races, I will share this as soon as possible with my fans”, said Styby, who will be flying to Mallorca next week to train. Later he will do also a first stage with the team.
