Always in the front in the E3

Always in the front in the E3

Yesterday Zdenek showed himself in the front of the E3 Prijs in Harelbeke. For a while he was leading the chasing group in the final, but at the end he had to let go. “I had to pay a price for all the effort I spend in the group, but I’m happy about my race.”

“It was a hard en stressfull race”, Styby told after the race. “I had to help the guys in the beginning. It was my job to make sure some big group didn’t take a lot of minutes. We worked very good as a team and we always stayed in the front. That didn’t change when we hit the climbs.”

“I was happy that I showed myself on the cobbles. When Fabian Cancellara rode away on the Oude Kwaremont, we wanted to chase him down with a group of seven. That included myself and my teammates Sylvain Chavanel and Stijn Vandenbergh.”

That didn’t last for long. “Stijn and I had to let go the group because of all the effort we did. Later we tried to close that gap again, but we didn’t succeed. It was a nice race and I learned a lot again. I’m looking forward to Sunday with Gent-Wevelgem. I hope that the weather will be better as they predict.”
