Twice on the podium

Twice on the podium

Styby was on the podium in both weekend races. He finnished third in GVA in Namur and the same place he took in Sunday’s Superprestige in Ruddervoorde. His great series continue: he was on the podium in every race of the season!

GVA in Namur

It is a hard race always. I had a good start, I was first. But only for the short time. Then Albert and Vantornout caught me and Niels attacked almost immediately. Sven Nys came from behind and in another round he moved in front of us. I rode together with Klaas, he made a mistake, fell down and I got a small advantage. It was not my super day, so I am fully satisfied with the thirs place.

Superprestige in Ruddervoorde

Niels Albert attacked from the beginning. I was maybe fifth at this time and then I reacted for his attack, he had few seconds. We were four at thou group behind him together with Nys, Vantornout and Vanthourenhout. Nys made a great race, he was the strongest and he got advantage in the technical parts. We stayed a three there, I attacked in the last round and took the third place. It is really good to be on the podium in every race from the start of the season and I am happy with that. Albert and Nys are better now, but the season is long and I hope, that I will be better in every race.
