Etixx-QuickStep's Tom Boonen did not start his sixth annual charity event Boonen and Friends 2015 but there was a star-studded group that joined in the day's cyclo-cross race held at the Zilvermeer in Mol, Belgium. In the end, it was Sean De Bie (Lotto Soudal) who took the win ahead of Maarten Wynants (LottoNL-Jumbo) and Pieter Van Speybrouck (Topsport Vlaanderen-Baloise).

They day's event included some 50 professional riders including Boonen's Etixx-QuickStep teammates; Michal Kwiatkowski, Nikki Terpstra, Stijn Vandenbergh and Zdenek Stybar. Other big names were Marcel Kittel (Giant-Alpecin), Andre Greipel, Jurgen Van den Broeck and Tiesj Benoot (Lotto Soudal), to name a few.

Boonen is still recovering from a head injury, temporal bone fracture, sustained in a crash at the Abu Dhabi Tour in October. He is confident that he will recover in time for the Spring Classics.
