Twelfth podium from thirteen races. Great. Styby was third in Asper-Gavere Superprestige race and confirmed good form.
„I was in front of the race together with Pauwels at the beginning, but then Albert joined us. He was great again, I did not have power to catch him. When he attacked, I had a smaller crisis and I lost few places. When I moved back to the front, Sven Nys was there too and I was not able to catch his attack. So we were there together with Kevin maybe for last four laps and I won sprint with him,“ said Styby.
„I wanted to be better here, because Asper-Gavere is very prestigious race. But I have to be satisfied with podium. My result show, that I trained good during the summer and my form is solid from the beginning of the season till this time. I missed the podium only in Koppenbeg, so it is nice.“
