While it might not be the bike Tom Boonen will ride when he vies for victory in the cobbled classics this year, as he generally opts to use and S-Works Tarmac or Roubaix in those races, this custom painted special edition 'Tornado Tom' Venge will be the bike the 34-year-old will use for most races this season. We took a chance to take a closer look at Boonen's custom painted aero machine.
