Good for Boonen. Bad for Ciolek, but if you're going to break a collarbone, now is not the worst time of year to do it. Lots of racing ahead.
Phinney is impressive. I raced against him in the Tour of the Gila. It was, like, his third bike race as a 17 year old, and he tied for the GC win as a Cat 2. (Full disclosure: I was not the guy who tied him).
Well, he has won a GT stage, the Vattenfall Cyclassics, a stage in T-A and several stages in the Eneco Tour. He's not going to be a Cavendish by any stretch, but for a guy only having had 2 seasons in major events, he's doing pretty good.
