Default History Question

To all you cycling historians: Has anyone, pre Boonen, won Harelbeke, GW and De Ronde in the same year? If Boonen takes Roubaix on Sunday, I assume that no one has captured these 4 races in a single year. Is that right?

Van Looy is the only person to win Gent-Wevelgem, De Ronde and Paris-Roubaix in the same year - 1962. Nobody has won those 3 and E3 Harelbeke too, yet.
