Hard and hot day in the Strade Bianche

Styby finish sixth in de Strade Bianche. It was the first race after the five month break due to the Coronavirus. “And it was a hard one. Without a doubt the Strade Bianche is one of the most difficult races on the calendar. And the hot tempratures of almost 40 degrees made it even more hard.”

“I was struggling in the first half of the race, but in the last 50 kilometer I was getting better and better”, Zdenek told after the race. “Because of this I missed the moment where the peloton split and the leading group was being made. But I knew from expierience that there was no need to panic, so I maintained a steady pace.”

That eventually resulted in sixth place. “I just kept riding, even though it was hard, but I wanted to finish the race with a good result. Now I will need a few days to recuperate from this.” Zdeneks next race will be Milano-Sanremo.
