Zdenek starts in Tirreno-Adriatico today. “We begin with a team time trial, so we at Quick Step Floors start with high ambitions as always. It’s going to be an important week of racing for the coming weeks.”
“We have nice options with Fernando Gaviria for the sprints and Bob Jungels for the general classification. The last couple of days I wasn’t recovered from the Strade Bianche, but I had two extra days to recover so it should be ok for the start.”
Last year Styby won the second stage in Tirreno-Adriatico and wore the leaders jersey for three days. He finished seventh in the final classification.
