First Look: Omega Pharma-Quick Step’s 2012 National Champions

Belgium ♥’s Tom

If there’s one (two) thing(s) I took away from my visit to Belgium this past April, it’s that Belgium loves Tom Boonen and Omega Pharma-Quick Step. A visit to the Vermarc factory hammered it home – while the bins of Lotto-Belisol apparel overflowed, Omega Pharma-Quick Step kit was nearly on backorder it was so popular.

We won’t be seeing this one for a few months, if not longer.

The guys on the team, however, must hate their stock jerseys. The remainder of 2012 will see 8 of their riders wearing a National Champion jersey in a road discipline.

On the road:

In addition to Tom Boonen, Matt Brammeier, Niki Terpstra and Michal Golas won their road nats

In the TT:

Flying their nats jerseys alongside WC/German Champ Tony Martin will be Sylvain Chavanel, Peter Velits and Dario Cataldo
