Etixx-Quick Step has become second in the team time trial of the Eneco Tour. Zdenek and his team came close but finished six seconds behind BMC. And in the sixth stage the breakaway stayed ahead of the peloton. “And the most difficult stage still has to come.”
“It’s pity that we lost by so little but I don’t think we couldn’t go any faster. We did miss Tom Boonen. He crashed the day before and had to leave the race. One extra guy could make it different. But anyway, we did go really fast and I actually enjoyed it. It was nice.”
Today it was a normal stage again. “But with more wind and the course was also a bit heavier with several climbs, but not too many. The breakaway made it until the end. There were lots of crashes in the final, but I stayed on my bike luckily.”
“Tomorrow will be the hardest stage as the general classification will be made. I feel good, so I hope I can go for a good result”, says Styby, who still is 13th in the classification now.
