J.Rod because he raced most of the year and kept his name relevant in more than one race and for the length of more than one race. Anyone winning one race or one big race does not deserve to be on there.

Sorry guys and girls, and VeloNews, you didn't get the memo. This isn't about women, and you are all ignorant, donks, idiots, lacking in intelligence, clueless, lying or trolling (or all of the above) for not realising that women are not allowed in this thread. It was quite clearly, categorically stated in the original post in the thread that this thread was for men only. Well, it wasn't, but women are only allowed to be mentioned when you are given express permission to do so. By edict of the thread starter.

I'm sure all of you know where this was aimed at. Oh well.

people omit her because they realize that 99% of the posts here are related to male athletes so it seems redundant to actually mention this every time. true, this is not completely unambiguous, most people are still capable of understanding this concept. and most likely, you understand it as well, still you make sure to pop in every single time there's a similar discussion, make a fuss, and bait people into these pointless debates.
comparing her achievemants to male cyclists could be interesting, but repeatedly posting about her when it's clear to every able-minded member that the discussion is about something else is nothing but trolling

Feel free to inform VeloNews of their mistake and resume your bickering about whether Purito's year was better than Wiggins'. But don't mention Vos again, comprendez?

That one is not allowed to talk about her? Yes that is annoying. Truly awesome year of her.
