Boonen is Toe to Toe

There's probably a good joke, or at least a smile, here, but I'm lost for it at the moment...

Belgium's Tom Boonen is out of the Tour of Catalonia later this month after breaking his toe whilst trying to avoid a car near his home in Mol.

However, the former world champion is expected to recover in time for the Tour De France which starts on July 7th in London, according to a statement on the Quick-Step team's website.

"In order to avoid the car he had to mount the sidewalk and ended up hitting his right foot against a signpost," the statement read. "But at the moment his participation at the Tour de France isn't in jeopardy."
