Monday Picture: Boonen Kicks Off Worlds Week

World Championships week kicked off on Sunday with the new Team Time Trial event (ridden as trade teams rather than nationality) and after such a dominant year Omega Pharma-Quick-Step put in another top performance to take the victory by 3 seconds and kick-start Tom Boonens 'Rainbow' week as he looks to grab the Road Race World Championship title this coming Sunday. Pictured above he is congratulated by team-mate Sylvain Chavanel, and though Boonen mopped up ALL of the spring classics Chanvanel has been no slouch - French Time Trial champion, 8th in Paris Nice, 1st Three Days of De Panne, 2nd Overall Eneco Tour, 10th in the Tour of Flanders - It's been a great year for both, and a good year for the team.
