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)

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

And Mandy, I don't think he is even cute-ish anymore seeing the picture here.I totally agree. It was boring and predictable as hell as soon as Cancellara got behind.
And his body is fine, but the face ruins my view. (he has nice girlish hips sitting on his bike)

Girls. So shallow :rolleyes: :p

Boys on girls. So generalizing :rolleyes: :p

Not every girl in this thread is reliving puberty :p

But I certainly am :devil:

Has anyone noticed the shape of his ears???! :unsure: :scared:

Apr 13th, 2005, 03:16 PM

jealous of his good looks? :D

Apr 13th, 2005, 03:18 PM
the ears look alrightYou obviously haven't looked at his ears :o

Apr 13th, 2005, 03:27 PM
Has anyone noticed the shape of his ears???! :unsure: :scared:Yeah, I did, lol. Can't miss it, can you?
(I think he's an alien. A Vulcan, maybe? :secret: )

Once you've looked at his ears you can't look at anything else anymore :bolt:
Everytime he's on TV I can't help noticing his elf-like ears :o :lol:

Talking of ears and sorry to bring another man into the Tom Boonen appreciation thread (I do appreciate him, honestly, he looks lovely in lycra). Have any of you noticed Christopher Eccleston's ears (new Dr Who). His ears are so big, in a scene from last week's episode, they actually flapped in the wind! :tape:

I swear this is true! :p

PS: congrats to Tom Boonen!!!!

As a huge fan of Legolas - I'm sorry :o - I find Tom's ears perfect as they are :devil:
