Tom Boonen will ride for Quick-Step until 2013, according to a thingy on the Quick-Step website. Are we at all surprised by this news? I can't say that I am.
Press release quote!
"I always said this team was my first choice", said a satisfied Boonen. "I feel great here, it's like a family. There's a good, professional environment which is exactly what I want. Blah blah blah, etc.
Boonen's new contract also includes an option to extend it one more year to 2014, which seems like forever from now, but probably isn't. The time, it goes so fast.
