Czech cycle-cross racer wins world championship

Zdeněk Štybar has won the UCI Cyclo-Cross World Championships, becoming the first Czech to do so in 12 years. Despite a suffering a breakdown in the very first round, Štybar came back to take the gold after two years in second place in the under 23’s category. The win completes a good tournament for the Czech Republic overall, with Tomáš Paprstka winning the juniors category on Saturday, and an excellent week for Štybar himself, who last Monday became the first Czech to win the Cyclo-Cross World Cup. The 2010 World Championships are being held in the South Bohemian town of Tábor.
