December 13/09 18:22 pm - 2009 Canadian Cyclist of the Year Awards
Posted by Editoress on 12/13/09
Welcome to the 13th annual Canadian Cyclist of the Year Awards! Once again, it is time for our readers to cast their votes in three categories:
Canadian Cyclist of the Year - Female
Canadian Cyclist of the Year - Male
Best Individual Performance
The voting procedure reflects the fact that it can be difficult to select just one athlete to vote for. Instead, you will be able to rank your preferences, with the top rank receiving 5 points, the second receiving 4 points, etc. The athlete (and performance) receiving the highest average "grade" wins.
For this year, we have also made a change to the Best Performance voting. This year there were so many individual performances by Canadian Cyclists worthy of inclusion (14), that we have decided to present CC Awards to the top three performances, as selected by our readers.
There is one additional award this year: Canadian Cyclist of the Decade. This is a write-in vote, with no pre-selected names. Is it Roland Green with back-to-back world titles and a World Cup title, Ryder Hesjedal for results as a pro both off and on road, Lori-Ann Muenzer for Canada's one and only Olympic gold medal, Marie-Helene Premont for her Olympic silver medal and World Cup consistency, Gord Fraser for his incredible number of pro wins, or someone else we didn't mention here?
Cast your Vote.
