Zdenek Stybar's condition is improving. Yesterday the cyclo-cross World Champion trained for about an hour and a half without any particular problems to the right knee he hit against a protective barrier at the end of the Stribro cyclo-cross (24 September, 2011).

In agreement with the team's medical staff, Stybar has gradually trained again today in order to prepare for upcoming competitions.

"The problem seems to be solving," said Stybar, who flew to Mallorca this morning for a brief training camp. "Today I trained again carefully to then increase my workload starting tomorrow. If my knee doesn't start hurting again I'll be back to racing on Sunday in Ruddervoorde (Belgium)."
