Tom Boonen Wins slowest stage of Tour of Spain

Tom Boonen, a Belgian sprinter, won the 16th stage(the slowest) of the Vuelta de Espana(Tour of Spain).The riders in the race decided to ride a stage slower than usual as a protest. Total rebellions. Their average speed was 34km per hour, which was way below the usual speed 0f 40km per hour. They were going so slow that it took the riders a whole hour to complete the first 15km!!!!!!
Boonen has already this year won a stage of this years race beating Fillipo Pozzato and Heinrich Haussler to the finish line.
