I propose The Snowman Award, for the rider who gets the farthest despite swallowed by the snowball.
- the most scandalous behavior (some reference to a moustache) or poorest sportsmanship (mud)
and . . . well, I can't really think of anything else right now. Maybe just those two.
Maybe the Pavey Award for finishing a stage under extreme mechanical consequences. I think Si Pavey changed his engine in the middle of a stage in 2011?
Or the Merkit Award for happiest guy in the bivouac. He will be missed this year
