Now That Is Impressive!

Anybody who has  the slightest knowledge about cycling would have failed to have been surprised at Tom Boonens victory in Paris Roubaix yesterday. But hey! Bet nobody thought he would do it like that. The 52 km solo ride where he not only fended off the chasing pack but actually got further away from them as the race developed was straight out of  the Fabian Cancellara “How to Win a Classic” handbook. Heres a tip. Bet your house on him taking the first stage of this years Tour de France by 20 minutes and then defending it all the way to Paris. On second thoughts dont! He generously likes to give his valuable time to Mark Cavendish and Tyler Farrar when the road goes upwards. This is probably to keep their spirits up so they can give him a good drubbing when it goes flat again.

Nice one Tommy!!
