Styby misses podium in Strade Bianche
 

Zdenek became fourth in the Strade Bianche. Our favorite fought for the win for a long time, but eventually he just fell off the podium. “I really love this race. I feel very comfortable on the gravel roads. It was amazing. But still I’m disappointed in my result.”

“The race exploded with 100 kilometer to go due a big crash in the peloton. The selection was made and it included almost only favorites. So it was a long final. And the rain and wind made it very hard too.”

The leading group with Styby lost several riders after each gravel sector. “And at about 15 kilometers to go suddenly Michal Kwiatkowski attacked. We hesitated for a moment, so he quickly took some advantage.”

“Greg Van Avermaet, Tim Wellens and me went after him, but we came too short. Eventually I became fourth and I am disappointed with this result. But on the other hand, I enjoyed this race so much. It was really amazing.”
