PCM.Daily Favourite Cyclist Contest [Season 10/FINALE]
Voted. And many thanks for running this one last time, of course.


Season 10 Results

It's been a fun ride, but all good things must come to an end.
After a decade of running this contest, it's time to announce the final winner.
It's been a pleasure to host, thanks to everyone for participating.

Before I announce the winner, a few notes I'd like to share:

Interesting Facts

- There were two ties, which helped both finalist Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck stay alive in the competition.
- 3 Andy Schleck received the most votes during a single match-up with 21 in his first round win over 14 Christophe Laporte.
- The biggest surprise was 16 George Bennett reaching the Round of 16 by taking out 1 Thomas Voeckler and 8 Rui Costa.
- 18 votes were cast in the Finals to crown the last ultimate champion.

The Finals

3 Alberto Contador Vs. 3 Andy Schleck

For the first time ever, the Final ends in a tie, 9-9.
How fitting. You couldn't have scripted this outcome any better.
These two fierce rivals still can't be separated after all these years.

By longstanding contest rules, the tiebreaker comes down to my vote.
I never wanted to hold this much power, but here we are at the very end.
The last ever vote of the PCM.Daily Favourite Cyclist Contest.

So, let's try this again.

Your All-Time PCM.Daily Favourite Cyclist is...



The dramatics of the 2010 Tour de France inspired a young writer to challenge himself and re-write history. That story was published here, Andy Schleck: The Quest for History.

A conquest that was deemed impossible until it was accomplished.

So, making my vote to conclude this contest was a fairly easy one.

While Andy Schleck never got to accomplish anything close to that in real-life, his legacy still lives on. This All-Time PCM.Daily Favourite Cyclist award comes as a final crowning moment for a cyclist who never reached his true potential. A sad story that has been given a happy epilogue.

For a final time, THANK YOU.

It's been a blast running this PCM.Daily contest over the last 10 years.
But, it's time for it to come to an end. The timing feels right.
See you around the site, Mre. Wink

Of course :lol:

Edit: This competition made me rewatch the 2010 Tour. Really miss that year. I feel like the jerseys were much better in those days, Rabo, Euskaltel, HTC, Caisse, Garmin, Bouyges, Liquigas, Milram and even Saxo Bank.
:lol: Boy what an ending, a winner with an asterik on his name... thank you Mre!

Well done my boy Bertie, he has some ppl.on here who dislike him so for him.to.come this far is very very good!

Miss Bertie and Andy and so does the forum evidently.

Forever the best still the schleck fan at his core Sad

Any other rider and I would have voted Contador. But that ride over Izoard and Galibier won me that day.

It is so fitting that it ends with a last vote from the organizer. What en ending.

Gracias Alberto.
Wonderful ending, though I prefer Contador, Andy is also a worthy winner. I think those battles in 09 and 10 were one of the brightest moments I’ve seen in cycling, so really happy about the tie outcome of voters. Smile

Anyway, thanks for hosting this, Mre, it was really fun throughout the years I was around!
What a finish! Perfect really, my first ever memories of cycling are vague and sometimes clear (chain drop) memories of them in 2009-11, a special duo to be in the final. A tied finale with Mre making the final call as well, perfect Grin

Sad I was away this weekend to not be able to vote. Would have chosen Andy probably also!

I wasn't able to choose. Back then I prefered Schleck, but I really became a fan of Contador because he never stopped trying to attack against a.o. Sky. So I can really live with a tie haha, very fitting indeed for the final round.

Thanks for these years MrE! As you can see from my activity, it's something I came back for every year, even though I haven't been as active as I used to be. So thanks a lot for organizing this fun game! Smile
