In a clean sprint you would have seen the belgian championship all over again...

You mean the ones where Boonen just barely beat Gilbert in the sprint? :D

if you're referring to the fact that he's perhaps no longer a topsprinter I have to say that he was never a real sprinter and that it's logical that as he gets a little older the kind of rider he is also changes a bit, compare it to museeuw who won quite the number of sprints in his younger years but wasn't a real sprinter...

I have to agree with that
