G’Day Veloshirians!! WorldTour racing is back with the Tour Down Under. While we’re all trying to get to grip with transfers, team kit and team names it seems some things never change as Elia Viviani kicked off 2019 in the same style as he finished 2018 – with an effortless, beautifully timed victory.
This prestigious award is not decided on by mere trifles such as UCI points or pay slips. Like our regular Rider of the Race accolade, this title goes to the rider who has leapt out and grabbed us with his panache, made us laugh, made us cry and most of all made us LOVE this sport.
Previous winners: 2012 – Bradley Wiggins; 2013 – Peter Sagan; 2014 – Michal Kwiatkowski; 2015 – Peter Sagan; 2016 – Peter Sagan; 2017 -Tom Dumoulin
