Only for the third time at the season was Styby under the podium. He finnished in Overijse 1st category race on the 5th place.
„It is such a classic between the cross races: nice track with a lot of curves, up and down. But I did not have a strong legs and had some problems in technical parts. I wanted to be on a podium again, but fifth place is not tragedy,“ said Styby, who was happy about sixth place of his young teammate Tom Meeusen. „I can’t be fully satisfied with my place, but it is not possible to be in top 3 in every race. The more important races will come.“
