Boonen: “This was a once in a lifetime experience”

7 April 2017

“I felt like everyone was thinking about me today, it is really cool to race only a few kilometers from my home, it was a once in a life experience and I don’t know how to thank all the people who made this happen”

However, my mind is already focused on Sunday when I will ride my last race of my career in Roubaix. I tried not to pay too much attention to the fans along the route but they made it difficult to not feel any emotion. I was planning to save my energy but when Kittel came to ask me to guide him during the last lap, I stayed close to him and made sure he didn’t catch too much wind.
