Zdenek has won the cyclocross of Bredene. In a sprint with two he was faster than Rob Peeters. Dieter Vanthourenhout finished third. “I’m very happy with this win. It’s very important for me. But it wasn’t easy to win here. I had to fight to the last meters.”
The track was very fast in the beginning. “But after a few laps it started to rain, and the track changed. It was suddenly very technical and muddy. The first group that was created immediately after the start lost man after man because of that.”
“In the last lap Peeters went on the attack. I tried to follow him, but I didn’t close the gap fast enough. I was giving everything I had. It was all or nothing. The headwind to the finish helped me, because I was able to come back to Peeters in the final meters.
Styby went up and over Peeters and won his first cyclocrossrace of the season. “And I won my third Vespa. Now I have one for my home in Mallorca. I wonder how the legs will feel tomorrow, because then I will race for the fourth time in four days!”
