Bleu bands "Race against cancer"

Tom Boonen's wrist has been sporting yellow and red wristbands and a yellow sweatband in the past. At the medical check and in the first stages of the Tour, Tom was wearing a blue wristband. "I got this from Nick Nuyens," Tom told the VUM papers.

By wearing it, Boonen is supporting the charity organisation "No Limits". Former pro and current Team CSC director sportif Scott Sunderland is the front man of their Race against Cancer campaign. Virtually the complete Belgian peloton was wearing a bleu wristband at the Belgian National Championships, and now plenty of them are to be spotted in the Tour peloton.
