Tom Boonen in Playboy magazine

According to the press officer of Quick.Step-innergetic, Alessandro Tegner, the media are standing in line to get an interview with Tom Boonen. "Recently, the Spanish Playboy magazine contacted us," Tegner told Het Nieuwsblad. "He has decided to say yes to them. Not right now, but maybe during the Vuelta, in preparation for the World's in Madrid. No, he won't be seen in the nude, they will publish a good interview. Michael Schumacher talked to them before, or don't you read the mag?"

A gay magazine is also asking for an interview. "In the tour of Switzerland he did ten interviews, there's twenty more in line," Tegner added. "It's becoming a bit much. On the Thursday before the Tour he will attend a press conference; until then there's silence."
