Boom blamed his asthma inhaler for his low cortisol levels.
In 2014 Boom won the fifth stage of the Tour de France, a stage marked by difficulty due to wet conditions and significant sections of cobblestones. The stage was his first win of 2014. It was exactly nine years ago that a Dutch rider, Pieter Weening, won a Tour de France Stage.
