Win all stages in a Tour ?

Boonen's latest efforts got me wondering about this. Anybody ever win all stages in a tour, be it 3 or 4 days or 10? I doubt it has happened in anything over 3 days but maybe it has, if so, that's be an amazing effort, especially if it included flat and hilly stages, plus/or a TT also.

My guess is if it had, we'd all know the answer.

There have only been a few times where someone lead the TDF from start to finish, let alone all stages. The closest to winning all stages in any of the three major tours would have been Alfredo Binda with 12 of 15 if I remember correctly.

Gianni Bugno led the 1990 Giro from start to finish......but we're getting a bit O/T.
