Styby takes a bath with his bike

You'd think Zdenek Stybar, fanatic as he is about his job, would sleep with his bike, but our world champion goes a step further. His Ridley bike is thoroughly cleaned and polished after training every day. “It doesn't take too long and I like to ride on a nice bike,” Styby said.

He trained alone on Saturday while the other crossers had other (easier) plans.

“My rest day is scheduled for Sunday. Today I did some more climbing including the Soller, the Puig Mayor and the Randa. Three big mountains.”
