When Boonen has leg warmers he’s using that race as training. He had a fantastic Classic’s season. For me it tops the dominant year in 2010 when Cancellara did the double.
Tom was so consistent thought that early season and seemed so focused. I wonder if in 2013 he will break the Paris Roubaix record and cement his name for ever in the history books.
With Cavendish now on board it will take a huge amount of pressure off him, so potentially allowing him to dominate again as in some of the faster flatter pavé CLASSICS, he can have Cavendish waiting in the wings to take the win, while Tom hones his form for the ultimate prizes.
