Bettini's World Champion and Olympic Gold shoes.
Now, who gets to be team leader at the Tour of Flanders? Bettini has said that he wants to win Flanders before he retires and why not? It is one of the Monuments, one of the greatest one day races, which like Paris Roubaix, can make a rider's career.
In 2006 Bettini and Boonen raced together for Quickstep only once, at Milan-San Remo. Certainly, the team sponsors want the rainbow jersey to be at as many races as possible. It would be great to see them work together to get one of them on the podium at each of the spring classics.
