Gallery: Stybar wins Boonen and Friends charity race

Pros race in the sand

Former 'cross world champion Zdenek Stybar won the Tom Boonen and Friends Charity Cyclo-cross on Saturday afternoon in Belgium. Maarten Wynants and Pieter Vanspeybrouck rounded out the top three while Matteo Trentin was fourth and Peter Sagan rode to fifth.

"That was fun! thanks to all supporters!" tweeted Stybar after his victory, "...have to say that it was not easy. I've enjoyed [it] a lot!"

Held for the fourth time, the race benefitted the charity Move to Improve, which helps children with neuromotor problems.

The race's namesake, Tom Boonen, had to sit out the race. He is continuing to recover from the stomach illness that kept him out of the Omega Pharma-Quick Step team camp earlier this week.
