Simple question. And I think I know who is going to win this. I also think it was fairly easy to select the nine candidates, however I couldn't find a worthy number 10. Feel free to vote and comment if you think someone is missing from the poll.

I'll repeat what I said last year with Pog instead of Bernal.
I get that such a young rider only enters one GT per season to avoid burn out, but 1 GT win + 1 GT podium > 1 GT win, no matter what GTs are on each side of the equation.
I think Pogacar disqualified himself from the win here with that stupid solo move at the Worlds. What was he thinking there, really?
I have to say Roglic. However, I can see a case made not for rider of the year, but domestic I guess. And it could go to multiple members of JV. As well as other key people on other teams like Carapaz.
