The 2010 Tour of Flanders was the 94th edition of the monument classic. The course was 262 km long between Bruges and Ninove. After the Oude Kwaremont, a group of favourites gets away from the peloton. In this group: Matti Breschel and Fabian Cancellara (Saxo Bank), Tom Boonen (Quick Step), Thor Hushovd (Cervélo TestTeam), Leif Hoste (Omega Pharma-Lotto), George Hincapie (BMC Racing Team), Juan Antonio Flecha (Team Sky) and Steve Chainel (Bbox Bouygues Telecom).
At 45 km from the finish, Fabian Cancellara attacks, Tom Boonen is the only one who can follow him.
The two big favourites stay ahead however and on the Muur van Geraardsbergen (Kapelmuur) Tom Boonen seems to place an attack but with his counter-attack Fabian Cancellara gets away from Boonen.
Tom Boonen finishes second at 1'13". After the race he declared being a bit disappointed because I've never really had a bad moment. When he (Fabian Cancellara) suddenly accellerated I tried to follow him but I got some cramps at that time and couldn't follow him. I was at 55 kilometers an hour, but he was still going faster! Philippe Gilbert (Omega Pharma-Lotto) sprints for the third place ahead of Björn Leukemans.
