Even the best make mistakes

If you watched the race today in Begium, you saw that one of the world's best racers made an embarrasing mistake... He started to post up before crossing the line and got nipped at the line. I never expected Tom Boonen of team Quick Step to make a mistake such as this especially considering Boonen started his sprint early. He got nipped at the line by Mark Cavendish of team High Road, but half a wheel.

Let this be a lesson for all racers out there... It is much more important to practice your sprint and bike throw, than it is to practice your post up. If Boonen had held his sprint and did a bike throw there is not doubt that he would have been the winner.
