Just when you thought after watching the Tour de France, that cycling couldn't get any crazier, here's a mad topic from Belgium: The girlfriend of demigod Tom Boonen has her own fan club. Lore, who has captured the hearts of cycling fans in Belgium, was writing her own diary in one of the Belgian newspapers. Even after Tom had to leave the Tour and the green jersey because of injury, she still kept putting her thoughts on paper.
Yesterday, the huge crowds in Diksmuide came mainly to see their hero from Balen beat McEwen and Hushovd in the evening criterium, but there were also a few present for his beautiful girlfriend Lore. Cartoonist Nesten made one of his larger than life drawings and Tom seemed to be quite pleased with the result. The new fan club of Tom's girlfriend Lore was launched with loud approval.
