    Yep, Cav is thee first cyclist to win this national award since Tom Simpson in 1965.

    Voted for by the British public a short list of Britains top sportspeople is compiled and the ordinary punter gets to vote the person he/she thinks is the best.

    Just shows the popularity of the sport in the UK these days too.

    If Henry Cooper wasn't such a personality and all round fun TV guy, Beryl Burton would have nabbed the win in 67.
