Teammate wins and takes over Styby’s leader jersey
The second stage in the Czech Cycling Tour has been won by Fernando Gavira. The Colombian teammate of Styby was the fastest in a sprint. Styby himself became sixth, but loses his pink leader jersey to the winner.
“The stage was more difficult than we originally thought”, Styby said after the second stage. “In the final, with 30 kilometer to go, we attacked with an echelon. Only 10 riders were able to follow. I tried to attack near the finish, but it didn’t work out.”
And so the stage finished with a sprint. “We were confident, because we had Gavira and we knew he is a fast guy. And he did it. He won the stage. We our very happy he is in our team.” Zdenek will start in the red leader jersey for the best Czech rider tomorrow.
