BEAT Cycling – Season review

5 December 2019

BEAT Cycling

BEAT Cycling has had an amazing year. With 9 UCI wins, the BEAT road team can be found on position 43 on the UCI World ranking. That’s number eight best Continental team worldwide! Piotr Havik took first place at the GP Stad Zottegem (UCI 1.1), staying ahead of favorites (among which André Greipel) claiming a first ever BEAT win at this level.

World Ranking

BEAT has been very visible throughout the season, participating in races broadcasted on national and international television, such as NOS, Sporza and Eurosport. We got noticed by famous Sporza commentator José De Cauwer, complimenting BEAT on the organisation, appearance and material. Being a valued BEAT partner, Today’s Plan plays a major part in this. An eager Piotr Havik even took on Greg van Avermaet and Peter Sagan, during the Gooikse Pijl (UCI 1.1): click here for video.

Last season, the BEAT road team was good for 9 UCI wins in total, varying from UCI 2.2 up to UCI 1.1 classifications.

Victories

Race reports (in Dutch):
The BEAT track team is continuously taking the stage at all levels. Early this year, Matthijs Büchli and Roy van den Berg (both part of the Dutch sprint team) took gold at the World Championship in Poland. Matthijs won gold again, by winning the Keirin tournament. During the European Championships in the Netherlands, the Dutch sprint team once again dominated and won gold. During the European Games, Roy was part of the Dutch selection and won gold at the team sprint once again. Theo Bos demonstrated his strength by winning silver at the Kilo TT, at both the World and European Championships. Our track team, also including Nicky Degrendele and Laurine van Riessen, is now working towards the Olympics of 2020, taking on several World Cups along the way.
