Zdenek Stybar (Etixx-QuickStep) will close out his reign as cyclo-cross world champion in three weeks after confirming that he won’t be racing at the World Championships in Tabor, Czech Republic. Stybar has said that a shoulder injury sustained in a crash in October means he will be unable to defend his title at the start of next month.
Born in Ireland to a cycling family and later moved to the Isle of Man, so there was no surprise when I got into the sport. Studied sports journalism at university before going on to do a Masters in sports broadcast. After university I spent three months interning at Eurosport, where I covered the Tour de France. In 2012 I started at Procycling Magazine, before becoming the deputy editor of Procycling Week. I then joined Cyclingnews, in December 2013.
