Once again it’s that time of the season when we list our riders of the year. The riders who impressed us in 2019 with their results and thrilled us with their performances. Only this year there was a difference — you chose most of them. When we put the top three of all but two of the rider categories to the vote, you voted in your thousands and I think your choices were spot on. Even in the categories where there were three equally strong contenders, you chose fitting winners. And they do each receive an award. Many of them were at our awards event in London last week, while others will have to wait for their trophies as they were away on training camps or racing. We also recognised the achievements of…

cycling weekly awards 2019 in association with garmin®

It speaks volumes about the success of British cyclists in recent years that coming second at the Tour de France can be seen as an underachievement. The bar gets higher every year. But some riders find a way to clear it and keep the racing exciting and fascinating to watch. These awards acknowledge a host of historic performances from British and foreign pros alike. Also, with our Lifetime Achievement award we pay homage to one of the greatest people to ever pedal a bike, who continues in his post-riding career to be an inspiration to generation after generation. We always feel proud to hunt out the winners of Club of the Year, Charitable Initiative and Local Hero awards. These are the people who keep our scene alive and make cycling…

male rider of the year

In association with Hope 10 HUGH CARTHY Hugh Carthy proved this year that he is ready to take further leadership duties at EF-Education First. The 25-year-old from Preston won many admirers at the Giro d’Italia, where he finished highest in his team and even wore the white jersey on stage 13. Then at the Tour de Suisse, Carthy showed that on his day he is a formidable climber. On the hilly parcours of stage nine, Carthy took his maiden WorldTour win. After a long-range attack, Carthy soloed his way to victory in Goms. EF-Education First rewarded Carthy by extending his contract to at least 2021. 9 CHRIS LAWLESS Great Britain is spoilt for choice when it comes to punchy, fast finishing, 20-something riders and Lawless stands at the head of them. Lawless came good this year at the back…

2020 vision

Following his last race of the season San Sebastián Classic, Yates went on holiday to Fiji and Los Angeles. At the time of writing he was on his second of two camps in Gran Canaria. The plan had been to give him a longer run in to the 2020 season, to allow for any issues with illness or injury. Mitchelton-Scott are cagey about his exact plans though they are “early” in the season — so most likely a tilt at he Giro again. Yates has also previously expressed a desire to win gold in the Olympic road race. The course with its mountains suits him and he’s a proven and instinctive winner, probably the best GB has at its disposal.…

female rider of the year

In association with Lazer 10 NEAH EVANS When British cyclists were lighting up the velodrome at Rio 2016, Neah Evans was working as a vet, but four years later she is on course to race at Tokyo 2020. It was a trumphant year on the boards for Evans. The 29-year-old joined the Olympic team pursuit shortlist when she won with the team at the European Track Championships. The bulk of the Scot’s victories came in the Madison. She won with Katie Archibald at the Manchester and London six-day races, and with Emily Nelson in Hong Kong. 9 NIKKI JUNIPER Nikki Juniper has spent 2019 mostly racing abroad with the Isorex team. Her impressive performances secured her a spot on the British team at the World Championships in Yorkshire. There she rode in a support role to Lizzie…

the team manager’s view

Ronny Lauke has been manager at Canyon-SRAM since its inception in 2016; he signed Barnes two years later and knows her well. “We didn’t sign her for her results, it was what we had not seen yet that raised our interest,” Lauke tells CW. “When you meet her you don’t really see her as someone who will be fighting for the finish line in a sprint because she seems to be too relaxed. You can get the impression the focus is not there.” Lauke believes this laid-back attitude may be holding her back in the sprints. “As the sprinter you need to show confidence to your team-mates, and I believe she has not mastered that yet because she has not been in that role often, but she has made progress — in…
