the answer is yes :p
 
My List, with links

Ballsiest = Lance (given that he has only 1 ball) - NOT! Actually, all pro's are ballsy, b/c cycling is the hardest sport in the world - either that, or "cycling is for ***."
Bravest = Tie between Cancellara (for his stage 7 TdF descent while in Yellow to regain leaders) and DiLuca (for riding to 2nd in the Giro whilst doped on CERA)
Craftiest = Michele Scarponi (for his 2 Giro stage wins and zero positive tests)
Crankiest = Lance (for his shunning of media in Giro and his hating on Contador all year long)
Creepiest = Jock Boyer (gross)
Fiercest = Thor (SMASH!)
Funniest = Harm Jansen (retired or not, still the funniest)
Likeable-est = Mike Friedman (how can you not like a guy w/ the nic' "MeatBall"?)
Loneliest = Danilo DiLuca (for how quickly his team decided to sue him after having been caught doing what they most likely condoned...[see above link])
Scariest = Denis "Crash" Menchov (pity he who follows the Russian's wheel on a day like that of the 17th stage of the 2009 TdF)
Sexiest = Rochelle Gilmore (duh!)
Shyest = Riccardo Ricco (fleeing the doping control chaperons is evidence of S.A.D., right?)
Toughest = Vino-4EVER!
Virile-est = WTF? Can this really be a category?

WARNING: Don't bother with this thread unless you're feeling a little frivolous :)

We all know which riders are the best climbers, tallest, wealthiest, oldest, fastest sprinters, etc. Personality traits are less quantifiable, so I'm putting these up for discussion - feel free to suggest alternatives and/or add others :)

Ballsiest = Robbie McEwen
Bravest = Kenny van Hummel (based only on TDF performance)
Craftiest = Lance Armstrong
Crankiest = any of a number of bike tossers
Creepiest = Michael Rasmussen
Fiercest = Jens Voigt
Funniest = Jens Voigt
Likeable-est = Jens Voigt
Loneliest = Cadel Evans
Scariest = Jens Voigt
Sexiest = Fabian Cancellara
Shyest = Denis Menchov
Toughest = Stuart O'Grady
Virile-est = Jens Voigt

[Scariest = Denis "Crash" Menchov (pity he who follows the Russian's wheel on a day like that of the 17th stage of the 2009 TdF)

Hitting the deck twice in 15 minutes was scary. How many front-end wash outs have we seen from Menchov?:confused:

Dude, I've heard Cancellara's swimmers are so strong he can knock a woman up just by being in the same room. That's pretty virile. And scary.:eek:

I guess I'm not confident enough in my own masculinity to address the topic of virility in male professional cyclists. One of the reasons why I felt compelled to name a FEMALE as sexiest... :D

with all due respect, there are not stronger swimmers than Lance's. They were nuked and yet they came back to life to produce a baby. At high altitude, mind you. Their VO2 max is off the charts. :D

Liz Hatch may rank right up there as "sexiest" too. Races for Team Vanderkitten. If there is a category for "Sexiest Team" Vanderkitten would win hands down. VVVVaaaannnndderrrrrkkiitttttennnnnn. Yep, just rolls right off your tongue.

Coming back to life is impressive. Sorta freakishly virile...

Whiniest - Cancellara is close with his 2009 TdF antics. I think Cadel has take this award, it pains me to say.

Bravest - Tyler Hamilton. Drugs or not, grinding your teeth down to deal with pain and riding the TdF and winning a stage with a fractured collarbone is impressive.
