Well, Tom Boonen actually did all the hard work, but come on… There’s got to be some credit that goes to Art’s and our Team Quick Step team store, where you can purchase official Team Quick Step gear online. The coincidences seem to be piling up; last week we talked about Team Columbia-High Road’s rise to dominance since artscyclery.com has become the official online distributor of Team Columbia-High Road gear, and after Tom Boonen’s win at the 2009 Paris-Roubaix this weekend, what more proof of the relationship between Art’s, professional cycling teams, and winning do you need? Check out our Team Stores, where you can order official team kits from Team Liquigas, Team Columbia-High Road, and Team Quick Step, plus outfit your bike with all the components that your favorite pro team uses.
If you are short on motivation to get on your bike and hammer, look no further than Boonen’s dominant ride through the Arenberg forest, over the cobbles, and power lap around the Roubaix Velodrome, and what better way is there to get into Tom’s frame of mind than by getting into his clothes. OK, poor choice of words, but go ahead and order up some nice, fresh kit and get out and ride. Even if you can’t put in 161 miles in 6 hours, you’ll still look like you can.
