Yesterday, Frenchman Jimmy Casper finished eighth in the final stage of the three-day Driedaagse van West-Vlaanderen to maintain and win the overall. The Unibet.com rider ended with five seconds over Belgian Wouter Weylandt of Quickstep-Innergetic, winner of stage three, in the overall classification. Weylandt won the bunch sprint after all attempts at breakaways were reeled in.

Stefan Van Dijck (Wiesenhof-Felt) rounded out the top-three overall in Belgium, with Niko Eeckhout (Chocolade Jacques-Topsport Vlaanderen), winner in 2006, finishing fourth.

"After today's win I have more faith in myself and I believe my teammates have too," explained the 22 year-old Weylandt after his stage win. "It's the most important win of my career."
