Two For Two

Tom Boonen, current road racing World Champion, has already established himself as THE man to beat this season, just as he was for much of last season.

First he won the Doha GP and now has won the first stage of the Tour Of Qatar. In both races he beat both Robert Hunter of Phonak and Erik "Too Old To Know Better" Zabel of Milram by significant margins.

Boonen has been a favorite rider of mine since his time with the US Postal Service team, but it's not like that makes me special. Everyone is a Tom Boonen fan these days, and for good reason.
