That's as may be, but look at the races she won in 2012 - 2x Worlds, Olympics, Giro Donne, 3x major World Cup events.

Quality over quantity, otherwise the poll would just be Cavendish '09, Cavendish '10, Cavendish '11, Cavendish '12...

Come to think of it, why isn't Cavendish '09 on the list?

Or even Cavendish 11

Worlds, Tour sprint domination, 3 stages in the Giro.. certainly seems a fair call to me and both would be better there than say Contador 09 or Evans 11..

Milan-San Remo > Copenhagen Worlds

Frankly, any race in World cycling except the Scheldeprijs > Copenhagen Worlds.

Gilbert 11.
Then Contador 08, Wiggins this year and Evans last year in no particular order.

No, I think Alberto will try it again and do it before he retires

I think it would be more fun if the question was: what is the most satisfying year by a rider for you?
Then we could get alot of different answers i am sure
