Today the guys had the pleasure to train with birthday boy Kenneth Mercken pro rider (ex team mate with Tom Boonen ) on his 36th birthday.
They did 2 full laps on the course and then took a quick ride for coffee to Germany .
Kenneth Mercken is Belgian screenplay writer, movie maker and producer who won WAF Wildcard award for his movie “The Letter” in 2011 The movie is about a young Russian cyclist who comes to train in Belgium and loses his grip on reality after taking performance-enhancing drugs.
Tom said that this guy spun double the cadence he did and never came out of his drops. Kenneth was so smooth it sucked to be behind him struggling and sweating while it looked so easy and simple the way he did it, but it was a pleasure and great learning experience. Thanks Kenneth and happy birthday!
