Palmares Cyclocross Tabor
Sven Nys is the most successful driver in the history of this cyclocross. He won four times the cross Tabor: 1998, 2001, 2005 and 2007. Double winners of this intersection is Mario de Clercq, Bart Wellens, Radomir Simunek and Kevin Pauwels.
Cyclo in Czech Republic
Cyclo has been a popular sport in the Czech Republic. Largely emerged that popularity by the success Radomir Simunek sr., Who in the eighties and nineties belonged to the world of cyclo-cross. He twice won the amateur world champion in 1983 and 1984. In the eighties Simunek was good enough to be a topprof, but during the communist regime officially banned professional sports. Only after the fall of the Iron Curtain Simunek got the chance to become a professional. He then took a world title in the pros: 1991. As a tribute to the deceased Simunek 2010, the race in Tabor then called Memorial Radomir Simunek.
A later greatness in the history of the Czech Cyclocross is Zdenek Stybar won the final standings of the World Cup and Super Prestige and also the champion twice in the world elite. Unfortunately, in recent years Stybar focuses mainly on road cycling, instead of cyclocross. He will not start in the cyclo-cross in Tabor 2013.
Radomir Simunek Jr. probably will. Must start in the World Cup cross Tabor in 2013. He won the cross twice. But in 2013, there should not be much expected of him in these cyclocross. Simunek Jr. Had the run-up to champion cross with a bacterium that he had to follow a course of antibiotics and for many weeks no races could drive.
Normally, Martin Bina in Tabor, leader of the Czechs. He runs, in part due to a back injury, a very volatile season where he switches with performance fraud.
