Our World Champion has been training in Mallorca for a week. He is happy about the great conditions. "The weather was fantastic during the first week. I spent five hours on the bike every day. Then I had my first day off on Sunday and I returned to the training today. But the weather was much worse: rainy and cold. But I trained in the mountains and I rode about 155 kilometers. It was cold, only 9 degrees, and I had to go to the sauna when I came back to the hotel :-). But it was good training for the weather that's expected in Belgium," Styby smiles.
Several cyclocross riders are there with him including Radek Šimùnek, Petr Dlask, Gerben De Knegt, Bart Aernouts and Kevin Pauwels. "The guys are here, but everybody is staying in a different hotel. We road a few trainings together, but mostly I trained alone. A lot of guys did not want to ride with me :-)
Styby will fly to Belgium on Wednesday evening. "I should be at home in Essen at midnight and then I will concentrate on the Fidea Cup in Niel, which is on Thursday.“
