Zdenek had a busy week. He traveled from Livigno to the Czech Republic, where he married with his girlfriend Ine on Monday. After two days of training, he flew back to Belgium to start in the Tour de Wallonie this weekend.
“My marriage with Ine took place in a castle near Mlada Boleslav. In the afternoon, because in the morning I had to train a little bit. It was a very nice day. We both enjoyed it hard with our families. The big party will follow at the end of the season in Belgium.”
Zdenek had only recently arrived in the Czech Republic. “Because I was at a training camp in Livigno. I was not alone. We had a nice group of our team Omega Pharma-Quick Step there. We had a good time with good trainings. I trained much uphill.”
“After our marriage, I had some trainings on Wednesday and Thursday in the Czech Republic, and then I flew back to Belgium. Now I look forward to race again, because it’s been since the national championship in late June. So a month ago.”
Styby will start in the Tour of Wallonie today. “I hope to do well there, but I’m not sure how my condition is now. The route suits me well. The toughest stage is the one around Liege, so that should still be fine to me. We’ll see how it goes.”
