Boonen takes to the track

Before flying in Andalucia, Spain, to take part in the Vuelta a Andalucia, World Champion Tom Boonen will attend the Six days of Hasselt in his native Belgium tomorrow, February 9, to ride against Rabobank's Marc Wauters in the pursuit (3000 m). The show will be on in the evening at 8 pm.

But before 'Tornado Tom' will take off to Spain, the Quick.Step rider will receive yet another prize: On Friday afternoon, he will be handed the Trophée National du Mérite Sportif, a recognition for the Belgian sportsman of the year, directly from the hands of S.A.R. the Prince Philippe of Belgium in the Brussels' Hôtel de Ville.
