Tom Boonen will lead the Etixx-Quickstep team in the Tour of Flanders this weekend, seeking to claim the outright record for most wins in Belgium's biggest one-day race. Boonen is one of six riders to share the current record of three wins, having been victorious in 2005, 2006, and 2012. The other active rider in the list is Boonen's rival Fabian Cancellara.

Boonen was joined in the reconnaissance of the route by Zdenek Stybar, Niki Terpstra, Stijn Vandenbergh, and Nikolas Maes.
