Tom Boonen is back racing only two weeks after breaking his toe in a training crash, but he is still handicapped by the injury.

The Belgian sprinter finished 32nd in the first stage of the Tour of Belgium and 20th in the second stage, both of which were mass sprint finishes. "Tom especially noticed his toe on the cobblestones," said Quickstep Directeur Sportif Wilfried Peters. "Apparently the problems from the training crash need more time to heal."
