canada flag.2December 27, 2017 (Toronto, ON) – Voting is well underway in Pedal Magazine‘s Annual Cycling Awards for 2017 honouring Canada’s top riders in ALL categories from this past season.

The race for Best Overall Cyclist (Male or Female) is a 3-way battle between Michael Woods and the Men’s and Women’s Team Pursuit squads duking it out for the top spot.

Woods and the MTP boys are battling for Best Overall Senior/U23 Male Cyclist but Peter Disera is ready to pounce and bump them both. In the duel for Best Overall Senior/U23 Female Cyclist it’s Jasmin Duehring out front with Allie Bev trying to close.

Chris Ernst and Ali van Yzendoorn are off to solid leads in the Junior Men’s and Women’s races but they’re catchable if the chasers Maggie Coles-Lyster, Michael Foley and Gunnar Holmgren can p/u steam.

So who’s leading the Best Track Senior Cyclist (Male or Female) contest… ? Yep the Men’s and Women’s Team Pursuit squads are tracking votes.

Meanwhile a 3-way battle is playing out in the Best MTB XC Senior/U23 Cyclist (Male or Female between Emily Batty, Sandra Walter and Catharine Pendrel… this one is very close.

It’s Mark Wallace and Miranda Miller neck-and-neck in the race for Best MTB DH Senior Cyclist (Male or Female)… and it’s almost a mirror image for the Best CX Senior/U23 Cyclist (Male or Female) with Michael Van Den Ham vs Ruby West vs Maghalie Rochette facing off.

Tory Nyhaug is getting a run for his money in the Best BMX Cyclist (Male or Female) by Daina Tuchscherer and look who’s leading the Best Paracycling Cyclist (Male or Female)… the amazing Ross Wilson.
