The Belgian took on the ‘trequartista' role for Quick-Step Floors, ensuring his team was in prime position at the foot of the Muur van Geraardsbergen where the race unexpectedly was made. Ultimately, Boonen finished the race in 37th position, but only after he had set up teammate Philippe Gilbert for the win.
