Cy­clo- cross World Cham­pi­onships, Hooger­heide

Procycling - - Folio -

2014 could well prove to be Zdeněk Šty­bar’s break­through sea­son in the Clas­sics on the road and he only added weight to that no­tion with a su­perb vic­tory ahead of Sven Nys at the Cy­clo-cross Worlds in Hol­land. Cap­i­tal­is­ing on sev­eral mis­takes by the de­fend­ing cham­pion on the fi­nal lap, Šty­bar cut him­self free and soloed to vic­tory. It was the pow­er­ful Czech rider’s third world ti­tle and his first since 2011, the sea­son he switched his fo­cus to the road with Quick-Step.
