Stybar out-powers Nys in Ardooie

Vantornout best of the rest in Kermiscross

World champion Zdenek Stybar continued his winning streak at the Kermiscross in Ardooie today. The Czech rider topped Belgian champion Sven Nys in a sprint for the line, while Klaas Vantornout claimed third.

It was the 24-year-old's fifth consecutive win of the season, but his closest contest to date, with only Nys and Vantornout able to withstand the pace in the final laps. Belgians Niels Albert, Dieter Vanthourenhout and Rob Peeters made up part of a six-man group that remained together coming into the last lap, but were dispatched before the finale.

Stybar has now equalled the record of Albert, who last year took five wins in a row while wearing the rainbow jersey.
