Dr Hutch: My annual cycling awards go to...

Dr Hutch looks back at the 2017 cycling season and gives kudos to the year’s cycling standouts

As nothing interesting in the world of cycling ever happens at this time of year (I mean, who ever heard news of a rider returning an adverse urine sample in December), it’s time to present the round up of the season. This year it is going to take the form of the coveted Doctor Hutch awards.

Unfortunately there are several awards we have to withdraw from the ceremony this time around. They include perennial favourites “Best Decongestant”, “Best Brand of Padded Envelope” and “Best Appearance before a Select Committee”.
