It’s official: Zdenek will start on Sunday at the World Championship cyclo-cross in Hoogerheide. “My condition is good. I believe I can put a good result here.”
“The last few weeks I trained in Mallorca and now I feel ready to race. I’ve seen the track today and even if I couldn't really train on all of it. As I said a few weeks ago, if I decide to do Worlds it is because I feel that I can do well.”
“The podium would be a great result even if the competitors are really strong, especially Sven Nys who showed his class in the last races. I will do my best to be competitive. Normally the track will be hard because of the rain the last few days. I like these kind of conditions, but I hope it won’t rain on Sunday.”
“From today till the last day of the race I won't do much following some decent training in Mallorca. I will take advantage of the next days to recover a bit and find a good set up and feeling with my Specialized Crux bike. I'm really looking forward to the race. Worlds are always special and they gave me a lot of notoriety in the past."
