Race of The Year
I have no doubt about it: the Paris > Roubaix was the most entrateining race this year with the far attack from the Etixx-guy, Boonen near the 5th, Cancellara's farewell ride and Sagan dropped. Only rain missed.

Monument Classic of The Year (World Championships included)
Roubaix, for the reason above

Grand Tour of The Year
We had a boring Tour as usual, and an exciting Giro and Vuelta. I prefer the Vuelta due to the big names involved that missed in Giro.

Minor Race of The Year (everything else that is not a Monument, WC or a GT)
Dauphine Libere. There were not so interesting races this year out of the big ones...

Rider of The Year
Peter Sagan. Practically has won everything and more.

Stage Race Rider of The Year
Chris Froome. Won a Tdf without dominating, get 2nd at Vuelta due to Formigal stage. Can make the double next year

Classic Rider of The Year
Peter Sagan. Flanders + Wc is enought.

Young Rider of The Year
There are not big names in the young riders for GTs this year, but i think Gaviria can be a good name for this.

Sprinter of The Year
Mark Cavendish. Indeed he was back to the best times

Climber of The Year
Esteban Chaves. A pity for the flu that costs him the Giro

Neo-prof of The Year
Gaviria, again

Continental Rider of The Year
Sonny Colbrelli. Results talks.

Team of The Year
Etixx-Quickstep. Basically won everything even if they really suffers the spring classics

Grand Tour team of The Year
Movistar. Dominant at Vuelta, limited the damages at Tour making Quintana get 3rd without apparently merits

Classic team of The Year
Still Etixx, even if they suffered.

Most Disappointing Rider of The Year
Basically Fabio Aru. He has great expectations for Tour and failed.

Most Disappointing Team of The Year
Tinkoff team. Basically they went everyone on their own.

Most Disappointing Young Rider of The Year
Don't know. Wait to see other names

Most Disappointing Sprinter of The Year
John Degenkolb. Indeed.

Most Disappointing Climber of The Year
Fabio Aru

Most Disappointing Neo-prof of The Year
Don't know. Wait to see other names

Most Boring Race of the Year
Tour de France. Please stop the Sky guys.

Most Boring Monument Classic of The Year
Milano - Sanremo. After Le Manie's deletion is always the same shit.

Most Boring Grand Tour of The Year
Tour de France, obviously

I don't think John Degenkolb deserves to be nominated as the Most Disappointing Sprinter of The Year, he was ran over at the beginning of the season and almost lost one finger

- Race of The Year
Paris -> Roubaix, even if Lombardia was also great.

- Monument Classic of The Year (World Championships included)
Paris Roubaix

- Grand Tour of The Year
Giro d'Italia, with an awesome last week.

- Minor Race of The Year (everything else that is not a Monument, WC or a GT)
Maybe Itzulia, with Henao fighting with Contador until the end. Paris-Nice was great too, Suisse...

- Rider of The Year.
Season after season, there's a men who races lots of races and win most of them. I'm not a big fan, but i have to vote for Alejandro Valverde

- Stage Race Rider of The Year
Esteban Chaves with 2 podiums deserves a prize.

- Classic Rider of The Year
Peter Sagan

- Young Rider of The Year
Adam Yates did an amazing year. Chaves is young too but Adam deserves the prize. He could be in Tour Top3 after Morzine but...

- Sprinter of The Year
Ca-ven-dishhhhhhh!!!

- Climber of The Year
The amazing Froome.

- Neo-prof of The Year
No doubt here, Gaviria.

- Continental Rider of The Year
Coquard showed a good level, he'll win a TdF stage for sure next year.

- Team of The Year
Orica, amazing season.

- Grand Tour team of The Year
I'll say Movistar, because Sky is only good at Tour, and then they do things like Formigal.

- Classic team of The Year
I think Orica. Roubaix-Lombardia.

- Most Disappointing Rider of The Year
Kristoff, with only little wins.

- Most Disappointing Team of The Year
Cannondale, good riders to make top10s but not to win.

- Most Disappointing Young Rider of The Year
With a good start in Omloop, i'm mad about Tiejs Benoot next classics.

- Most Disappointing Sprinter of The Year
Viviani, with no World Tour wins.

- Most Disappointing Climber of The Year
Fabio Aru, everyone thought he could do much better.

- Most Disappointing Neo-prof of The Year
I only hear about Neo-prof when they do well, so i can't tell about anyone who did bad.

- Most Boring Race of the Year
Tour de France, because it's boring x 21 days, so 21 times boring.

- Most Boring Monument Classic of The Year
Snow saves Liege here, even if it was good, Milano - San Remo has 270 killer kms where most of times nothing happens.

- Most Boring Grand Tour of The Year
Giro d.... NO! Tour de France, of course!
