Zdenek Stybar (Deceuninck-QuickStep) will ride his first cyclo-cross race of the winter when he lines out in next Sunday's World Championships in Ostend, Belgium.

The three-time world champion had previously indicated that he would not participate in any cyclo-cross events this season, but he has reversed that decision amid uncertainty over the early part of the 2021 road calendar due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
