This particular award is always hotly contested. This year we have an interesting list – big name retirees, a couple of cycling legends, a super domestique and a race itself. To be honest, they all deserve this award …
Voting ends on 14 December 2019 at 11.59PM, GMT. If you think there’s someone who should be on the list, there’s a write-in option on the poll at the bottom of the post!
The recipe for stage 14 of the Tour de France was supposed to end in a delicious sprint finish and (after a looooong 208kms) it lived up to expectations as Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data) earned his 4th Michelin Star. Oops, I mean TDF stage victory of 2016 – and his 30th career victory overall.
Hi, it’s Tim here. This is normally the time of the month when Ant invites us all to post our Rider of the Month nominations. However, he’s currently in Jamaica on a pre-Tour training camp, where I’m reliably informed he’s on a strict diet of curried goat (guaranteed 100% clenbuterol-free) and as many piña coladas as he can manage. (Don’t worry, he has a Theraputic Use Exemption for those.)
