Zdenek followed up his win in Stribro with another victory in Louny. Jiri Polnicky finished in second, more than two minutes back and teammate Petr Dlask completed the podium.
"The course was extremely difficult due to the heavy rains" was the word from the Czech Republic. "That meant a lot of running. I knew that would be the case this morning so I put on my running shoes for an hour."
Polnicky, who finished second on the day was more than two minutes behind our favorite. "I was surprised that it was such a big lead. I think I can now say that I'm ready for the big races. This was good training."
The first big test of the season is the GVA race in Namen this Sunday. "So now I have to leave the Czech Republic. I don't race here enough, but I promise to make a good showing during the World Cup race in Plzen!"
