Styby had a bad luck in the second category race in Niel. He fell down in the last lap and finnished third.
The fall came in one curve. „It was at the worst moment. I lost few seconds and I had to change my bike. I was not able to catch Nys and Albert. And I also punctured at the end of the race on the road,“ said Styby.
„I am little bit disapointed, because I believed to myself for the sprint. But what can I do. I have to be happy with the podium. It was the race organised by Fidea and sponsors were satisfied.“
