Belgian sprinter Tom Boonen was once again too fast on the road and has lost his driver's license for the second time within a month. The Quick Step rider was stopped for driving 180 km/h in a 90 km/h zone shortly after midnight Wednesday morning and was also tested with an alcohol level of 1 permille, instead of the allowed 0.5 permille. He had to give up his driver's licence for two weeks.
Boonen had previously been stopped for speeding at the end of April, losing his license for two weeks.
The incident was not his only car-related problem this week. On Thursday, he was out training with directeur sportif Wilfried Peeters when a car turned abruptly in front of them. Boonen could not avoid hitting the vehicle, but was not injured.
