Zdenek will begin his cyclocross season later today. Our world champion kicks off his season in traditional fashion with a race in his hometown of Stribro, where his father has been part of the race organization for the past several years. “It’s nice to make my debut in front of my home fans.”
“It seemed right for me to make my debut in my new jersey in front of my fans in Stribro. Starting here is really special and that won’t be any different tomorrow. The circuit is also close to the city and very technical. It’s a good way to start the season.”
So you’ll head back to Belgium feeling good? “That’s the plan. This race is a good test. Then I’ll know where I stand,” our Czech said. After the race in Stribro, he’ll head to Switzerland for the first cyclocross race in Baden.
