Eh, we already knew Wiggo would win Velo d'Or, that's what happens when you win the French races.

I wonder how Gilbert ended up 4th in the Velo d'Or ranking. What kind of mad man voted for him as rider of the year? I mean, he got 3 victories and 1000 cq points...

Yep. He got 5th without winning a single stage race, and where his only one-day race win was the national...

Isn't the Vélo d'Or normally awarded in late October?
I had the subscription, but then I noticed only Brad, Cav, Cav, Brad are on the front page (I'm not lying)so I canceled it.
