    I think it would be better if they had two categories for cycling, road and mountain. It is pretty obvious who will win this because of two reasons.

    1. The Tour gets so much coverage compared to any mtn. bike event.
    2. Everytime I have read VeloNews, it is usually more road based.

    That is my two cents. Good luck Brian. You got my vote.

    I think you could make a good argument for just about anybody on that list – George H. in particular. He wins Kuurne-Burxelles-Kuurne in the spring, finishes second in Paris-Roubaix, and ends the season winning GP Ouest France Plouay. In between he wins one of the toughest stages of the Tour and helps LA to a 7th consecutive overall win – No small feat. A great season from beginning to end.
