Gallery: The key moments from the Cobbled Classics

The 2012 Cobbled Classics are now behind us and we head to Ardennes full of memories and still amazed by Tom Boonen's dominant performances at the Gent-Wevlegem, the Tour of Flanders and, last weekend, Paris-Roubaix.

In pulling off two characteristic sprint victories and a stunning solo victory, the Omega Pharma-QuickStep rider has written a new glorious chapter in what has already been a decorated and colourful career. He has set records and made history along the way and few would bet against him returning next year and adding even more titles to his palmares.

Although Boonen really was the story over the last couple of weeks, there were plenty of other sub plots and incidents. So click on our gallery for the photographic story of the 2012 Cobbled Classics.
