Tom Boonen Update

Etixx - Quick-Step announces that Tom Boonen still feels good, and today he moved to the hotel supervised by team medical doctor Jose Ibarguren.

Boonen will pass a CT scan next Thursday, October 15, 2015, after which it will be decided when he will be able to fly back to Belgium.

"I'm pretty optimistic," Boonen said. "I'm still tired but I'm feeling good. Now I only need to give time for the fracture to heal, and time for myself to rest. I want to thank the medical staff of the hospital. I am in really good hands here. Also I received a lot of visits from the Abu Dhabi sports government. They really looked after me, just as my team is doing, since the moment of the crash."

"Tom is recovering well" Team Doctor Yvan Van Mol said. "Considering the good clinical evolution, we expect that Tom can start preparing for next season in six weeks."
