Tom Boonen

Cobbled Credentials Again Please?

Three time winner of the Tour of Flanders. Four time Paris-Roubaix winner. Five time winner of E3. Three time winner of Gent-Wevelgem. Twice won Scheldeprijs. Twice won Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne. Won Dwars door Vlaanderen once. Interestingly has few podiums. Got a 3rd place at P-R waaaaaaaay back in 2002. Has two 2nd places at E3. Got a 3rd at Het Volk once. 2nd at Flanders once.

Tournament Mojo

Squeaked out a win over Maartin Wynants in round 2, 62-1. Look up the word Domination in the dictionary and you get Tom smiling at Maartin.

Nick Nuyens

Cobbled Credentials Again Please?

Four cobbles wins to his name: once each at Flanders, DdV, Hey Volk, and K-B-K. Also has finished 2nd at Flanders, Het Volk, and Brabantse Pijl once each and a 3rd place at Brabantse Pijl once.

Tournament Mojo

Nick ripped not ready for prime time Sep Vanmarcke in the last round, 51-17.

Commentary

I could imagine that both of these riders would be favored over the other remaining Belgian riders, Gilbert and Vansummeren but alas they face each other here and now.
