The BPost Bank Trophy (Dutch: BPost Bank Trofee) is a series of cyclo-cross races organised by the BPost bank which until 2011–2012 was known as the Gazet van Antwerpen Trofee. Many races are held in the province of Antwerp with others being held across Belgium. The first ever event was held on 1 November 1987 in Putte-Peulis. It is part of the grand slam of cyclo-cross.

In 2012–2013, the way that the general classification was calculated was changed from a points system to using the riders' finishing times of each race (like a road racing stage race) with time 'bonuses' also available at an intermediate 'sprint'.

Overall Winners[edit]

Sven Nys holds the record for the most overall wins: 9.
