Tom Boonen then talked about his next goals. The one who started driving on the circuit from the age of 21 is planning on the rest of his career and has set himself great ambitions: « I am a sportsman at heart. So I’m not looking for the easy.

And if it’s not this season, it will be next. […] In my life, there are two sports: cycling and motorsport. I also love riding a motorcycle!«
