Meant to reply to this ages ago, so here goes:

Male Rider - No competition at all here - it's Sagan because it can't possibly be anyone else

Female Rider - Megan Gaurnier

Domestique - Poels

Team - Bora for making that signing!

Grand Tour - the last couple of days of the Giro were epic and heartbreaking, and illustrated perfectly why this fucked-up sport still enthralls

Week Race - I missed alot of most of them, but what I saw of P-N was enjoyable

One Day - I have been saying for years that Paris-Roubaix is one of my least favourite Monuments, and I also seem to have been saying for the last 5 or 6 years that it has been the best Monument  Confused Well it delivered again this year - and I shed a tear when it was over

Best Stage - Giro Stage 19

Talking Point - For me, everything about the Armitstead controversy reeked of hypocrisy and arrogance

Breakthrough Rider - Gaviria

Disappointment - Tommeke in the velodrome

2017 Hope (Rider) - Kruijswijk deserves a big win after the disappointment in Italy.

What I will Miss - Cancellara
