Zdenek Stybar has confirmed his presence as a participant in the UCI World Cyclocross Championship in Hoogerheide — which takes place on Sunday, February 2nd — after training on the parcours.
“I’m in good condition,” Stybar said. “I came from important training sessions in Mallorca and I’m ready to compete. I like the parcours even if today 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.”
