Van Amerongen dominates in Pijnacker

Although Pijnacker didn't feature as a world cup for the under 23 riders, the organisations still saw fit to hold a race for the category with many nationalities still represented in the field.

Dutch under 23 champion Thijs van Amerongen dominated the event going on to easily win in front of a huge Dutch crowd.

The Belgian duo of Bart Verschueren and Kevin Cant spent the entire race in a battle for the minor podium places with the German Hans Becking and Dutchman Ramon Sinkeldam. In the final phases of the event the duo lost contact with the Dutch/German pair and were even passed in the final lap by Jiri Polnicky who took fourth place.
