Tom Boonen prepaired for Roubaix
8 April 2010
After a second place in the Tour of Flanders and another test in yesterday's Scheldeprijs Tom Boonen is anxious to win his fourth Paris-Roubaix this Sunday.
In last Sunday's Tour of Flanders Boonen was determined to get his third victory and escaped in the final with Fabian Cancellara. Although Boonen felt strong he was not able to keep the wheel of Cancellara when climbing the famous cobbles in Geraardsbergen. Being disappointed not to have won Boonen also look ahead already to turn the roles in Roubaix.
Scheldeprijs was a test for Boonen where he was involved in a crash but luckily without much damage. In the sprint he returned a favor for the work of team mates by pulling the sprint for Wouter Weylandt who finished fifth.
Sunday Tom Boonen and Stijn Devolder will be riding with slightly longer frames to have more comfort on the cobble stone sections of Paris-Roubaix.
