As previously announced on our Twitter, this year we would try to put out a new format for the prizes bounded to a seasonal performance. With this post we’ll officially introduce the #LFRAwards with the first edition related to 2021 season. The awards will be given not with Twitter polls like in the past, but we picked a group of people of different nations representing the cycling twitter with competence in both men and women’s cycling.

The jury will so be asked to put three preferences for each award. First preference will give 5 points to the rider, second will give 3 points, third will give one. In case of equal points, major amount of first pick will be used as tie-break. In case tie still stands, we’ll pick the winner as LFR between the two tied riders.

The awards will be announced during the offseason in two steps – the first step will be the nominations and the second step will be revealing the winner himself. The votes of the jury member will so be published and made public for each award after the winner reveal.

The awards that we are going to assign will be the following ones – each award will be for both male and female categories.

  • Rider of the year
  • Neo-pro of the year
  • Stage Race rider of the year
  • Classic rider of the year
  • Sprinter of the year
  • Puncher of the year
  • Attacker of the year
  • Time trialist of the year
  • Domestique of the year
  • Team of the year
  • Race of the year

The composition of the jury members for the 2021 edition of the #LFRAwards is the following (twitter account between brackets):
