Boonen Wins Tour of Flanders

Tom Boonen (Quick Step) has won the Tour of Flanders.

rejoined on the descent. Vladimir Gusev (CSC) and Flecha were 1:00 behind.

 

On the day?s final climb, the Bosberg, Klier attacked. Boonen covered him. On the summit, Boonen attacked, and Van Petegem, Klier, and Ballan joined him. Petito and Zabel rejoined later.

 

With 10 km left, Klier accelerated. Van Petegem followed up. Then, Boonen attacked, and no one could respond. His move was not decisive, as he led by only 0:10 with seven km remaining. His next acceleration sealed the deal, however, and Boonen cruised to the finish in Meerbeke unmolested.

 

 

During the next week, many of the riders will cross swords at Gent-Wevelgem and at Paris-Roubaix. Who will prevail? Check in at www.roadcycling.com and find out!
