Benoni Beheyt, Belgian, 1940 -

I am embarrassed to say that I know next to nothing about Benoni Beheyt. I know he was Belgian, and I know he won the World Road Race Championship in 1963. And, errrr, that's it.

I believe that he used one of the, then new, Campagnolo Record (1020) derailleurs to win his World Championship.

This particular photo of 'Beni', possibly taken in 1963, is printed on a band used to wrap a Stompkop cigar. It is one of two images of Benoni Beheyt on this site, the other is here.
