[QUOTE=DiabloScott;12889906]Boonen has 6 TDF stage wins, one Green Jersey, and he's worn the Yellow Jersey for a while... we should all be so unlucky.
He's got a better chance of winning a stage this year than probably 190 of the other guys. The fans want to see him, the sponsors want to see him, the press want to interview him, and he wants to show himself... that's plenty of reason. And he's starting tomorrow in what looks to be a lot of pain.[/QUOTE
I know his accomplishments, but he hasn't finished very often, of course he's a sprinter and they often don't...nasty looking injuries! I have a feeling he may not make it through the alps, let along to paris. But you never know...
You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. That's great...if you want to attract vermin.
