Tom Boonen wins 2016 RideLondon

The Race: Here's the report from winner Tom Boonen's Etixx-Quick Step team.

35-year-old Tom Boonen scored his second victory in the space of a week, taking Etixx - Quick-Step's 2016 win tally to 40.

Napoleon Bonaparte once said that "great ambition is the passion of a great character" and if there's a rider in the current peloton who can be seen as the epitome of these words, that's Tom Boonen. The Belgian proved again that age is just a number, passion and ambition being the quintessential factors that drive a rider in his permanent quest for victories and strong results, as he won the most important one-day race in the United Kingdon, RideLondon Classic (202 kilometers), which took place on Sunday.

It was for the first time in three years that the event came down to a bunch sprint, but this happened only after Etixx – Quick-Step and Orica-BikeExchange worked hard at the forefront in order to peg back the seven riders up the road, who at one point enjoyed a four-minute gap. Team Sky had the numbers in the group, with Ian Stannard and Geraint Thomas, and tried to take advantage of that, as the Welshman attacked with more than 50 kilometers to go and left his fellow escapees in the dust, building an advantage which looked to be insurmountable.

But the energy spent by the Etixx – Quick-Step riders at the head of the bunch paid off, as all the seven breakaway riders were pulled back, Thomas being the last one to wave the flag inside the final five kilometers. Protected by his teammates, who nullified a late move of Sonny Colbrelli (Bardiani-CSF), Tom Boonen found a breach at the front through which he powered away in the closing 250 meters, beating Mark Renshaw (Dimension Data) and Michael Matthews (Orica-BikeExchange) by more than a bike length.
