8th Beverbeek Classic (1.2)
 

While the big names of the professional peloton were busy racing the much more famous Omloop Het Volk, the young guns of the Eilte 2-Under 23 scene opened their 2005 season on Belgian soil with the 8th edition of the Beverbeek Classic Saturday. This 1.2-rated event, run by by the Comité Beverbeek Classic, was held under cloudy skies over a route of 169 km., ending in a 4-lap final circuit of 16.25 km. The race came down to a field sprint with 1977-born Belgian Jarno van Mingeroet (Profel Cycling Team) taking the victory in front of better-known Rabo-boy Hans Dekkers - who repeated his 2003 performance - and Steve Schets of the Bodysol-Win for Life-Jong Vlaanderen team, eight-place finisher at the Saint Gilles Croix de Vie leg of the Plages Vandenees circuit in France the past Sunday.

French riders couldn’t climb the all-Beneluxian podium, as their top-placed contender Tristan Valentin (Auber 93) ended up fourth. An English-speaking contingent, racing for the UK-based continental team Driving Force Logistics Ltd, also attended the event; American Michael Scherer was their top finisher as he took 43rd in the sprint, while Australian Jai Crawford was 65th and David Smith and Ryan Connor placed 81st and 110th respectively for Britain.
