CyclingNews Reader's Poll

According to CyclingNews readers, Lance was the "Rider of the Year" over Damiano Cunego, and three Lance "moments" were the "Best Moments" in 2004. Read the full articles over at www.cyclingnews.com. As big a Lance fan as I am, I would have to give the "Best Rider" trophy to Cunego or Bettini for consistency and results throughout the year. I'd lean towards Damiano, as who at the beginning of the year would have predicted Cunego to win the Giro and other world cup races and to finish the year at #1? At 23 years of age? Wow.
