Mark Cavendish wins BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2011

I have a feeling that will not be the headline come 22nd/23rd December. No doubt it will go to some sport personality that doesn't compete in the truly awful and misleading title of 'minority sport'.

From Cav's twitter feed, a few more bed heads come April?
One thing is for sure, it will not be won by a female, tut tut BBC, you really should know better. The last female winner was Zara Philips in 2006. There have been notable female champions since then including World and Olympic Golds. There is also four time Ironman (time for a new title) winner Chrissie Wellington.

Back to Cavendish. Anyone who can conceive a child during one of the most grueling sporting events deserves more than a medal and the razzmatazz of SPOTY winner 2011. In his own words, future Fatherhood is ‘the most exciting news I’ve had all year, and that includes what I’ve done in cycling'. Talking of medals, he did receive something very recently, Mark Cavendish MBE - well done! Let's hope that Queen&Co. are cheering him and Team GB when they pass her place in July 2012.

 Stay upright has a whole new meaning....
