Daddy Zdenek ready for the Tour

Tomorrow the Tour de France will start in Utrecht. And for the first time with Styby. “I’m very happy that I can be here. It was always been my dream to be here at the start of the Tour.”

“Since the Tour de Suisse it all has been a bit hectic. We did a recon of the cobble stage with the team and on Wednesday I rode Halle-Ingooigem. And a day after that Ine and I became the parents of our Lewis.”

“Ine remained in the hospital until Monday and then we could spend two days together at home. It was very emotional for me to leave. It has never been so difficult. I can’t just take two weeks of vacation.”

“It feels great to be the father of Lewis. I love him so much. He is so cute. I am also very proud of my wife Ine, because she did and does an excellent job, even when it’s not easy for her alone. I believe she will manage.”

“Now I’m here in Utrecht and tomorrow the Tour will start. I’m very excited to be here. It was always my big dream to ride the Tour. My condition? I hope it’s better than in Suisse. I rested a lot since then and did specific trainings.”

“I think that in the first week there will be some opportunities as for me as for the team. So I’m really looking forward. But I will take every stage day by day. So tomorrow we will start with the time trial here in Utrecht.”
