Styby has begun at his first Tour of California in the United States. The first stage ended up in a sprint and world champion Peter Sagan was the fastest. Our favorite let go of the peloton in the end and finished on place 133.
“I thought that I would suffer in my first race after Paris-Roubaix, and it also happened”, laughed Styby. “It was a hard day for me, but I also have to say the pace was also pretty high today.”
On paper it was a flat stage today. “That was what they told us. We had only one official climb, one that was 9 kilometers long. But we almost had 2.000 altitude meters. Not so flat if you ask me. Congratulations to Sagan, by the way. He is amazing.”
