Remember the Dirk Hofman Motorhome banners we’d see in the final 100 meters of all the classics. So far this year I haven’t seen them. However, this guy seems to have taken his spot. With about 17 kilometers remaining in the Tour of Flanders and then again at the finish this guy was waving his huge “Tornado Tom Frites” banner.
You might remember that Boonen also has a training book, which I suspect doesn’t mention frities as part of any training plan.
For those who may not know – frites are primary known as a Belgian snack similar to our French fries but with mayonnaise and are great for soaking up excess beer in your stomach.
