Boonen returns with Ghent-Wevelgem win

Ghent-Wevelgem 2011 logo

Belgian Tom Boonen roared past Brit Ian Stannard and put his name back on top with his win on Sunday in Ghent-Wevelgem. The Quick Step cyclist topped Italian Daniele Bennati (Leopard-Trek) and American Tyler Farrar (Garmin-Cervélo), and put his name firmly on the list of Tour of Flanders favourites.

Boonen's win today responded to Fabian Cancellara's emphatic E3 Prijs win yesterday. Boonen skipped yesterday's race and Cancellara skipped today's, but they will meet next week in Bruges for the start of Flanders on Sunday.
