Geraint Thomas wins SPOTY

Cycling Weekly - - THE BIG QUESTION -

Pleased for him, but how the hell has Chris Froome been over­looked all these years when Thomas wins it on the back of one Tour win? Mar­cus Wilde

Great cy­clist and greater per­son. Top man. Hope­fully he won’t lose the tro­phy. Mark Wil­liams

I was wait­ing to see an­other mic drop! Stephanie Bolt

I see this as a bit of a slap in the face for Froome, who’s achieved so much more and al­ways been passed over for this. And out­side of cy­cling I would have thought Harry Kane’s first World Cup Golden Boot for an Eng­land player in over 30 years is a bit more de­serv­ing of recog­ni­tion than be­ing the sixth Bri­tish TDF win­ner in the last seven years. Davyd Mel­nyk A few penal­ties and ab­so­lutely no per­son­al­ity what­so­ever, oh and he won noth­ing either! Kane had recog­ni­tion be­ing nom­i­nated but didn’t de­serve to win it. Chis Span­swick

Never in doubt… six calls well de­served. Shean Walsh

But some­how they still made a big­ger song and dance (lit­er­ally) about fin­ish­ing fourth in the World Cup. Steven Dol­man

I thought we’d learned af­ter Ryan Giggs that if a Welsh­man gets to the fi­nal, he wins it. Jonathon Dixon

Ab­so­lutely bril­liant re­sult that Geraint Thomas won SPOTY con­sid­er­ing cy­clists are hated on UK roads. Also great that he beat Lewis Hamil­ton and Kane, the pre­dictable win­ners. An­thony Holmes

Thomas’s Tour win cap­tured the heart of the na­tion
