Boonen gets ready for Milan-San Remo

Tom Boonen, dual stage winner in Paris-Nice but now out of the leader's jersey, will ride the last 50 kilometres of the Milan-San Remo parcours next Monday, March 14. Boonen will be joined by his teammates Kevin Hulsmans and Guido Trenti, and they will start at Capo Berta and finish in Sanremo, climbing the Cipressa and Poggio.

"We will focus our training on the climbs and on the descents of the of Cipressa and Poggio," said the team's director Wilfried Peeters. "If Tom wants to be in the front in the last kilometres, he must know every centimetre of the final. On Monday, Guido Trenti will put his experience at the service of Tom."
