Overdoing it?

Give Tom Boonen credit at least for knowing that there's such a thing as too many victories, at least in February.

After taking four out of five stages at the Tour of Qatar, as well as the overall victory, even Tom Boonen thinks his success is getting out of control. "Maybe this is a bit too much of a good thing," Boonen told Paul de Keyser in an interview with VUM newspapers, "but it's a wonderful way to finish this Tour of Qatar. It's a dream start my season in this way. Without the hiccup [gear malfunction] I would have taken all five stages; and yes, that would have been too much."
