Remember when Boonen was the rage of Belgium as a kid and the whole cycling world knew he'd be a star even if he half-assed his way through the early years.
Phinney and his genes have just done a pursuit ride less than 2" off Wiggins at a World Cup in China (4:24!).
For those that don't know, he's still only 17 and is Junior World's TT champ this year.
This is just huge for USA cycling's future.
