Tour highlights: How the green jersey was won

Quick.Step - Innergetic's star sprinter Tom Boonen took a little longer to win a Tour de France stage than anyone, himself included, though he would, after Stage 2 victory was snatched from his grasp by team-mate Gert Steegmans. The disappointment of having his team-mate out-pace him on his Belgian home soil aside, it was a great Tour campaign for the green points jersey winner, as Cyclingnews' latest Tour de France highlights package shows.

Boonen did finally get that stage victory, on the 199.5 kilometre run into Stage 6's finish at Bourg-en-Bresse, which was followed by another on Stage 12 for good measure. Relive Tornado Tom's run into Paris, and the green jersey, by clicking here.
