Styby was fourth in Superprestige race in Gieten. It was only for the second time, when he finnished under podium at the season.
„I had bad start, I was fourth and I tried to catch the guys in front of me. It cost me a lot of power. But I caught only Kevin Pauwels. I had small crisis during the third lap and was not able to react for Kevin’s attack. So I only controlled my fourth place, it was my maximum today. I am not disapointed. Track in Gieten is not my favourite, it is not about the technique, but only about the power. And I lost a lot of power in Koksijde on Saturday,“ said Styby.
He will fly to Spain with Telenet Fidea team on Monday. „We will train in Benicassin near Valencia and then we will move to Igorre for the next World Cup race.“
