Worldchampion cycling Tom Boonen wins his 2nd Tour de Flandres!

What a champion! WTG, Tom!

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!

Well, not for non-climbers. Boonen is keen on winning the green jersey in the Tour (which almost happened last year, but he fall ), but I'm sure he's prefering his rainbow-jersey and his victories in the one-day classics above all other prices

Good job from Tom, but I must say I was disappointed with this year's Ronde van Vlaanderen. Pretty boring stuff imho...

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

Arrogant guy.

Oh well, he's damn good so I guess he deserves to be arrogant.
