Cool Belgium's newest Cycling God Tom Boonen wins in The Hell

Congrats Tom on winning the historical double Tour of Flanders - Parijs-Roubaix And only 24 years old


Boonen paves way to historic double

Tom Boonen became only the ninth rider in history to score a Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix double with a superb win over the cobbles on Sunday. The Belgian out sprinted rivals George Hincapie and Juan Antonio Flecha in the Roubaix velodrome to become the 51st Belgian to win the event.

Boonen sealed the rare spring double after winning the Tour of Flanders race last Sunday.

"Winning today is more than fantastic," he said. "I hoped to win either the Tour of Flanders or Paris-Roubaix this spring but winning both is incredible."

The last rider to complete such a feat was Belgian Peter Van Petegem in 2003.


1. Tom Boonen (Belgium / Quick-Step) 6:27:31"

2. George Hincapie (United States / Discovery Channel) ST

3. Juan Antonio Flecha (Spain / Fassa Bortolo)

4. Magnus Backstedt (Sweden / Liquigas) +1:09"

5. Lars Michaelsen (Denmark / Team CSC) +2:48"

6. Leon van Bon (Netherlands / Davitamon - Lotto) +3:45"

7. Florent Brard (France / Agritubel)

8. Fabian Cancellara (Switzerland / Fassa Bortolo)

Domination... Congrats to him, but I seriously hope he doesn't start winning about every race he participates in.

And Mandy, I don't think he is even cute-ish anymore seeing the picture here.

Tom rocks. Great cyclist and bloody goodlooking guy.

2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!
