As of today, In Pro Tour Points, he is tied for 4th in the world at his chosen profession, who in here can say the same? And its a pretty tough profession.

Plus he doesn't mouth off, talk smack, intimidate witnesses etc...

Back to the race though... Boonen was doing some monster pulls with like 3-4k to go, and when neither Flecha or Hincapie attacked him after these big efforts I figured he was the freshest/strongest and would win it. He was also the obvious danger man if it came to a 3 up sprint.

My Buddy thought that maybe Boonen was going too hard, and would leave himself open. Blame it on youthful enthusiasm. But the now a days the radio keeps that from happening, as I'm sure he was kept in check by his DS. And maybe George should attacked in the Velodrome 1st, but we don't know what he was being told either, if anything.

A friend of mine was over there today, riding around in a Discovery Channel Car with Georges brother. I hope he has some good stories... Ill update you all.
