RCUK Reader Awards 2005 – The Results

We’ve been busy here in the RCUK office counting the thousands of votes that came in for the 2005 Reader Awards.

So, without further ado, here are the people, retailers, bikes, and all that is cycling, that you decided were most deserving of a beautifully shiny RCUK trophy this year.

Also, we haven’t forgotten that we promised a stylish wool Continental GP4000 Jersey to one lucky voter. We put all the name’s in the RCUK hat and the name we picked was:
Steve Clarke from Somerset – so congratulations Steve!
