    As if this wasn't hotly contested enough already, Murray had to go and win the US Open. Then again he still has no personality, so perhaps it's moot.

    No idea how they're going to sort this one out. David Weir's heroics further complicate the matter. The cop out is to just give it to Team GB of course.

    Good job we cocked up the Euros.

    As if cocking up the Euros was in any doubt!

    I'd quite like Ben Ainsley to win simply to surprise everyone.

    He's arguably easily as deserving as anyone else if not more so.

    I think it'll be Wiggins though. Would be very surprised if it's Murray. Feels like he has better years ahead of him yet, whereas this is it for the likes of Wiggins, Ainsley, Farah and Ennis.

    Wiggins is the first ever British Tour de France winner, and won the Olympic road race by some distance. I think he'll win it.

    I agree with kalel, there's still more to come from Murray.

    I'll be miffed if Ben Ainsley doesn't get a knighthood. Clearly Bradley should get it, but if it's a public vote....

    Isn't it good that it's such a hard choice for all the right reasons? :)

    Ben Ainsley?!?!? Seriously?!?! Might as well give the award to the wind.

    Is it a public vote? I'd say it'll be Farrah if it is.

    Personally, I hope Wiggins wins it. He's had some immense achievements over the last few years all capped with this years Tour win and olympics.

    Cav should probably have won it a few years back for breaking the British record for most stage wins in the Tour, so I feel cycling is owed some recognition!

    You've argued Ainslie before kal. As I said then - he's had a stunning career, but this award is for achievements solely in 2012, where several people have done more than him.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Hopefully lewis can win the WDC as well.

    Great win by murray last night, listened to it on the radio, till the end of the second set, he was was quite lucky to get through that. well done though.

    I hope bradley wiggins wins it. Winning the tour is unprecedented. The cyling lobby is pretty vocal and tight knit so i think they will come out enforce.

    But i hope they really celebrate it.

    Ashame really the brownlee brothers won't even get a look in, i been watching a bit of triathon since the olympics and these guys are awesome.

    Bet john terry wins it.

    Wiggins has a couple of years left in him still, and he could return to the track for Rio if he can't cut it on the road in 4 years time. I'd like to see Ainsley get it but he's making noises about Rio and Americas cup, perhaps they might justify holding back.

    Hoy won in 2008, Cavendish won it in last year, the cycling team got the team award in 2008 and Dave Brailsford also won the coach award that year.

    Except that isn't really true. Yes, technically the award is for the calendar year but it's fairly obvious they take career into account, hence Giggs wining over Button and Ennis a couple of years ago.

    Anyway, I agree Wiggins probably comes above Ainsley, but I think Ainsley comes above Murray.

    Whatever short-list they come up with will be "Wrong" in the eyes of one tabloid* or another.


    *Probably the Daily Mail, as they never miss an opportunity to bash the BBC

    Yeah, the cycling lobby will be out in force this year, Could swing it for Wiggins as the votes for others could get spread thinly.

    The first part is very true. Wiggo as been supreme this year. he will never do what he did this year again. Winning the tour de france is massive in my eyes. winning paris - nice, tour de romadie, criterium de deauphine, TDF, and the olympic time trail. Also he really likeable (the cricket crowd seemed to embrace with open arms), and alongside Cadel evans he is as seen as the start of a new leaf of drug free winners of the tour. He pretty vocal on anti drugs and thus a good role model.

    But as some one said above the lack of overall sport on terrestial is pretty shocking. needs to change.

    I wasn't disagreeing with the gist of the post, I want Wiggins to win and believe that he should. More that the guy seemed blissfully unaware that 2 out of the last 4 winners have been cyclists, last year was Cav FFS!

    Wiggo, Farrah, Ennis.

    Murray will have to wait his turn.

    Team will go to Team GB.

    Cav's win last year blows Wiggo's chances I reckon, BBC love a bit of diversity.
