E3 or Omloop? Can't I have both?

HOLY CRAP! Its here. Its actually here. Cobbles baby. First up is E3 Harelbeke followed by Omloop.
So i had a look and found some facts. Once again Boonen is' da man'. I think he has pretty much pissed all over Belgium claiming it as if he was a horny tomcat. 

Tom Boonen holds the record for the most wins in E3 with five victories( count them bitches), coming in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2012. He really is the big dog! Can he do it this year? Not in my eyes. I feel its time for new blood. I reckon 'the bear' Ian Stannard.

The on to one of my favourite races. Omloop baby!!!!!
Interestingly, Boonen the tom cat doesnt feature in the record books much.

The record for wins is three, held by Joseph Bruyère (1974, 1975 and 1980),Bruyère also has the fastest speed (43.35 km/h) for 1975.

 Ernest Sterckx (1952, 1953 and 1956)

 and Peter van Petegem (1997, 1998 and 2002).
