PCM.Daily Awards: Winners Announced

It's now time to reveal the winners of this year's PCM.daily awards! If you've been around last year, you'll know that we've seen some of the tighest votes in the awards history, resulting in a total of 4 tied categories, and this statistic has repeated this time around, as well. However, we have a new first too: a three-way tie, which has never happened in the awards' history!

There is the usual mixture of defending champions and new winners, congratulations to you all. Well done to everyone else who received nominations, and thanks to all who voted and took the time to send nominations, in order to make the voting possible.

The winners are revealed below, and I have also posted the full results into each thread in the Awards subforum.

Cycling Awards

Rider of the Year: Peter Sagan (75%). Runner-ups: Esteban Chaves and Greg van Avermaet (11%)

Surprise (Rider) of the Year: Oliver Naesen (40%). Runner-up: Gianluca Brambilla (34%).

Team of the Year: Orica - BikeExchange (63%). Runner-up: Etixx - Quick Step (15%).

Grand Tour of the Year: Giro d'Italia (81%). Runner-up: Vuelta a España (12%).

Grand Tour Stage of the Year: Vuelta a Espana, Stage 15 (37%). Runner-ups: Giro d'Italia, Stage 14 and Giro d'Italia, Stage 19 (23%).

Stage Race (non GT) of the Year: Eneco Tour (32%). Runner-up: Paris - Nice (23%).

Stage (non GT) of the Year: Tour de Pologne, Stage 5 (34%). Runner-up: Criterium du Dauphiné, Stage 6 (21%).

Classic of the Year: Paris - Roubaix (67%). Runner-up: Olympic Games Road Race (18%).

Management Game

Manager of the Year: SotD (35%). Runner-up: Shonak (26%).

SotD wins the title of best Manager outright after sharing the title with 3-times winner roturn last year, both thanks to his team's success, but more importantly to his great insights and activity.

New Manager of the Year: Croatia14 (69%). Runner-up: DaveTwoBob (21%).

Croatia joined the game only this year, but his ideas have always looked clear and straight, and his activity and commitment have been one of the highest.

Team of the Year: Strava (32%). Runner-up: Evonik - Elko (29%).

Strava and Evonik's reasons for topping the rankings are similar, as both come from lower divisions and are making great impressions in PCT and PT respectively. The cobblers' team narrowly edges out last year's victors.

Reporter of the Year: roturn (59%). Runner-up: Croatia14 (30%).

roturn has cranked out the most reports this year, keeping the pace high as ever, and doing so with his trademark efficiency.

PT Race of the Year: Paris - Roubaix (33%). Runner-up: Vuelta a España (29%).

Non-PT Race of the Year: Tour de Pologne and Tour of Vancouver (25% each).

Best Team HQ of the Year: Strava, Team I-Gen - Festina and Valio - DeLaval (26% each).

First ever time 3 nominations take an award because of a tie. A well-deserved award for all 3 for sure, though, thanks to their original and consistent updates.

Site Awards

Best Forum Thread: Who was the best Thomas Voeckler of all time? (47%). Runner-up: The Politics Thread (21%).

Fun fact: 3 of the 5 nominated threads were opened by Waghlon.

Best Avatar: baseballlover312 (36%). Runner-up: tsmoha (26%).

Best Story Writer: Ian Butler (42%). Runner-up: Shonak (25%).

Third straight award in this category for Ian, who will leave the honour to someone else the next year.

Best Team Story: Caja Rural by Kiserlovski01 (38%). Runner-up: Team Novo Nordisk - Achieving the Dream by sutty68 (24%).

Kiserlovski denies sutty a 3rd straight victory in this category thanks to his outstanding story.

Best One-Rider Story: Be A Pro in the 80s by zuff (35%). Runner-up: The Life and Times by jandal7 (26%).

zuff eventually earns himself a very well deserved victory thanks to the very well done format he's been proposing for a couple of years now.

Best Forum Game: Daily Song Contest and ICL (33% each).

Second year straight we have a tie in this category. ICL is at the top again, but last year's podiumer, EwanWilson's DSC, joins Bikex's creation this time around.

Best Site Initative: Management Game (48%). Runner-up: PCM.daily Expansion Pack (30%).

Best User Project: roturn's efforts for the MG (46%). Runner-ups: Daily Song Contest and Fantasy Database Generator by trekbmc (15%).

roturn earns further recognition for his Man-Game efforts.

Best Jersey Designer: krisa (27%). Runner-ups: the_hoyle and trvalezmateny (23% each).

After several nominations in this category, krisa finally takes the best shirtmaker award this year.

Best Graphic Artist: the_hoyle (63%). Runner-up: haasje33 (17%).

A third consecutive victory for the_hoyle in this category, this year with an even greater vote share.

Best Stage Maker: Margh Norway (33%). Runner-ups: Leon40 and togo95 (23% each).

Third consecutive win for Margh as well, second outright one after sharing it with emmea 2 years ago.

Best Database: PCM.daily's Expansion Pack for PCM16 (52%). Runner-up: PCM.daily's 2016 DB for PCM 15 (24%)

Best (non-DB) Download: TiemenD's Toolset (38%). Runner-up: Lachi's Editor (31%).

After winning for years straight, Lachi's Editor is 2nd in this category, conceding to TiemenD's toolset.

User Awards

Member of the Year: matt17br (44%). Runner-up: roturn (24%).

Second straight victory for Matt in the 'big' Daily award category.

New Member of the Year: Aquarius97 (86%). Runner-up: RadInconsistent (14%).

For the third year in a row, the New Member award has the winner with the largest vote share - 86% is a record victory. This year it is Aquarius97's turn, mostly active in the Cycling and Stories sections of the site.

Most Improved Member: Croatia14 (38%). Runner-up: MARSUPILAMI (25%).

Croatia is voted the 1st Most Improved Member, as his contributions to the site have been broad, going from great commitment in the Management Game, to stories, helping in the Database team, and new initiatives.                                                                         

Admin of the Year: roturn (43%). Runner-up: matt17br (39%).

roturn retains his Admin of the Year title thanks to his great involvment in many parts of the site, as well as his hard work in single-handedly organising the Fantasy Cycling Season and the Management Game.

Most Helpful Member of the Year: matt17br (83%). Runner-ups: Lachi and Selwink (6% each).

One of the clearest victories, Matt defends his title as Most Helpful Member - thanks!

Funniest Member: Arberg27 and Waghlon (30% each).

Two Danes share the award for funniest member. Arberg takes this award for his involuntary - or not - humour; Waghlon for his very voluntary wit.

Most Missed Member: Ian Butler (53%). Runner-up: Jesleyh (20%).

Ian gave his definitive goodbye to Daily just a couple of months ago, but his absence is clearly already heavily missed. Not the only award he snatches, either! Jesleyh is 2nd.                                                      

Other Awards

Fantasy Betting Champion: Ollfardh (29,000 PCM$). Runner-up: Strydz (26,015 PCM$).

Ollfardh has gained the title by winning only 9 of his 40 attempted bets, but by almost always winning big when it happened. Strydz is second for the second year straight.                                                                                       

Fantasy Cycling Season Champion: jseadog1 (8114 points). Runner-up: trekbmc (7954 points).

jdog takes the first title as Fantasy Cycling Season Champion, after a long, hard-fought race for the title, where several changes at the top position followed one another.                                                                          

And that ends the awards! Congratulations to all the winners. As usual, credit goes to emmea for creating the signature design used.
