Styby will patricipate in his second MTB race of the season when he starts in the Czech Cross Country Championships in Kurim on Saturday.
"I was fourth last year and I would like to fight for the podium this time around. I know that it will be very hard, but I trained well over the last few days and I hope that training will pay off in the race. The big favourite is Jaroslav Kulhavy, who won the European Championships last week. I am looking forward to racing against him. It'll be a good battle with one of the best riders in the world,“ said Styby, who will also start in the World Cup race in Champéry next weekend.
