After two hard crashes for Zdenek Stybar’s season, the current World Champion and the rider to win the last Worlds that was hosted in the Czech Republic will not be participating this year’s Men’s Elite Race. He was interviewed to share his thoughts about the last time Tabor hosted this event, the nature of his injuries, and casting doubts on his Spring Classic season.
Considering it is “extremely painful” for him to so much as lift up on his handlebars, the decision had to have been the right one. The full video is below, originally posted by Etixx_QuickStep on YouTube.
We’ll miss his way of animating most cyclocross races, and hope he’ll grace our World Championships again.
