Gilbert leads Belgians at Worlds

Belgian team manager Carlo Bomans has designated Philippe Gilbert as team leader at Mendrisio on Sunday. The Silence-Lotto rider says that if the race is hard Tom Boonen will ride for him. By way of explanation Gilbert says that the Worlds in 2010 and 2011 are on sprinters’ courses and he will repay Boonen then.

It seems very likely to be a hard race with Evans, Valverde and Cunego among the favourites but Bomans has retained some faith in Tommeke as he has described the big sprinter as “shadow leader”
