Tom Boonen is was a happy man after winning Dwars door Vlaanderen on Wednesday, his first ever victory in this Belgian race. The Quick.Step rider was particularly pleased with his new Specialized, which was made for him after he suffered from back problems on his Tarmac. The new frame is all-aluminium with a beefed up rear triangle, making it 400g heavier than the carbon model. The other main difference is that the top tube is 1.5cm longer, but the stem is 1cm shorter than Boonen's previous bike.
