Road To Roubaix
Your go-to place for anything Tom Boonen-related over the next weeks will be http://www.quickstepfloorscycling.com/roadtoroubaix
One of the most accomplished riders in history, Tom Boonen – the symbol and captain of Quick-Step Floors since 2003, when he joined Patrick Lefevere's squad – is set to bring down the curtain over his prestigious career in around five weeks, at his beloved Paris-Roubaix, which he has won on four occasions (2005, 2008, 2009, 2012), a feat only one other rider has achieved since the race's inception in 1896.
To mark Tom's final Classics campaign, which kicked off at last month's Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, Quick-Step Floors Cycling Team launched the Road To Roubaix website, where fans will find a history of Tom Boonen's participation in the "Queen of the Classics", galleries from each of his previous outings at the race, blog posts of the 36-year-old Belgian as he enjoys his final weeks in the pro peloton and prepares for his big goals of the spring, as well as testimonies of sport directors and current or former teammates, who will share their stories of Tom and of what made him the greatest rider of all time on the cobbles.
