Boonen Strikes Back!

After two straight sprint losses to Alessandro Petacchi in the Ruta Del Sol, World Champion Tom Boonen struck back to win the final stage, just barely beating The Jet across the line.

It's about time. Petacchi is a great sprinter, but I've never really been a big fan of his. He has far less charisma than other great sprinters like Boonen, Erik Zabel or Mario Cipollini. He's just not that cool, really.

That's my expert opinion.
