Davide Bomboi, nephew of Tom Boonen, will be one of the leaders of Polartec Junior in the Vuelta a Bizkaia
Junior freshman, but with very good results, Davide Bomboi will be the next guest of the Alberto Contador Foundation to run in the Polartec Junior team, which every year usually brings some Belgian riders to Spain to know the Spanish cycling, and also sends back some of its cyclists to become familiar with the hard Central European races.
In this case, the novelty is greater since he is a nephew of Tom Boonen, who personally had recommended him to run with the Contador Foundation, always advised in these cases by Johan Molly, massage therapist of the Quick Step and one of the best Connoisseurs of the junior and Under 23 Belgium squad. Even his son Kenny, who now runs on a continental team, has also passed some time on the ranks of the Alberto Contador Foundation as part of his cycling training.
Davide Bomboi already knows what it is to run in Spain as a cadet, where he has won the Vueltas del Bajo Aragón and Gandía. This year he has especially stood out for finishing third in the Junior Tour de Flanders. Now, his goal is again to take an other step in Spain, in this case the Bizkaiko Itzulia, the most demanding of the Hispanic calendar next to the Besaya Tour, with the addition of having an even more powerful international participation.
Félix García Casas, the director of Polartec junior, says that Bomboi “will be one of the leaders of the team with Hugo Sampedro, without ruling out the rest of the selected riders for this race. We needed to complete our team because this week we also run the Tour de L’Ain in France and having to split, a reinforcement was very good. He is not a pure climber, but surely he will know how to take advantage of the possibilities of a course as demanding as this year’s “, concludes the technical head of the Contador Foundation.
