Three-time world champ Zdenek Stybar to race cyclocross in December

Here's the report from Zdenek's Quick-Step team:

The three-time World Champion has revealed that he will compete in several races this winter.

In a return to the discipline that he describes as his "first love", Zdenek Stybar will be riding a few events shortly after Christmas, starting with the Zolder World Cup, scheduled on the 26th. He will then move on to the races at Loenhout on 28th and Diegem on 30th December, followed by the Baal event on New Year's Day.

The 33-year-old Czech rider, who won the World Championships in 2010, 2011 and 2014 and the World Cup in 2010, will use the races as part of his build-up to the 2019 road season, before joining his Deceuninck – Quick-Step teammates at the January training camp in Calpe.

"I am really looking forward to my return to cyclo-cross, a beautiful discipline that I love taking part in", Zdenek said. "It will be some really hard and competitive racing and hopefully I can have some good form and try to have some fun. It is also a great chance for me to mix with my Czech teammates and to help some of the younger riders who are coming through, which is something that I am very passionate about."
