Styby made a great result in GVA race in Hasselt. He celebrated third win of the season, but this one was the most important. He beat Niels Albert!
„I am very happy. It is my first big win and also first big win of our team Telenet Fidea,“ said Zdenek. He won the race in sprint. „There was a long road part at the end. I was first there, but I did not know, if I will keep my position. Bu my teammate Kevin Pauwels was behind me and I told myself: when you don’t win, the first place will stay at the team. But I kept it and I am very happy to beat Niels Albert, who is the best rider now. It is good for my head. I am able to beat everyone now,“ said Styby.
