The sprint was a formality, Boonen has super form. The fact that he also had prime position coming into the last bend was incidental: his kick would have been sufficient from the front, rear or in between............

Backstedt was chasing hard, which obliged Flecha and Hincapie to work with Boonen, or attack him. Looked like they were too cooked for the latter.

Very rare to see a rider win Flanders and Roubaix in successive weeks.
