The story is beginning again, just as it did 14 years ago

Default Boonen!

Milan-San Remo, Tour of Flanders, Paris-Roubaix, Liège-Bastogne-Liège, Tour de France, World Championship on the road, Tour of Lombardy: every cyclist dreams of victories in these races. Victories in other races would, I suspect, with pleasure exchanged for a victory in one of these historic cycling events. All this races have a long and famous history. Who won at least four of these races? Not more than 42 cyclists!

Tom Boonen won in 2012 two of those races. He was the only one.

Yes impressive, but did he win these 4 races in 2012?
