Dreams Come True: Cornfield Boy Meets His Hero

Remember this kid? Of course you do...

Well, because Tom Boonen, his hero, is so freaking awesome, Cornfield Boy (nee Tjörven Cleenewerck) got to skip school today for a little mutual admiration time with the King of Flanders. My favorite part is the jersey exchange. If anyone has time for translation, feel free. I know I'm biased but is cycling the least phony sport ever or what?

Boonen, meanwhile, says that Paris-Roubaix "remains a target. Good to know. If he wins he will join Roger De Vlaeminck as the only riders with four wins. Big contenders thread coming soon...
