Boonen Takes Stage 1 of Paris-Nice

Originally uploaded by Hammerson.
Today's 193km stage traveled from Villemandeur to Saint-Amand-Montrond. There were a few breakaways, including our man Dave Zabriskie. However, the sprinters' teams pulled everything back together with 6km to go. In the end, Tornado Tom outsprinted Allan Davis and others to pull out his eighth victory of the year six days into March. I guess there is no rainbow jersey curse this year. Boonen also took over the top spot on GC due to time bonuses, with Bobby J slipping to second place. Ho hum, another 200km tomorrow....
