Isle of Man Sportsman of the Year – again

Mark Cavendish was awarded with the IoM’s top prize.
A packed house in the Royal Hall saw Cavendish, still only 23, receive the Isle of Man Bank-sponsored award to huge applause.

World Cup snowboardcrosser Zoë Gillings, tipped as Britain’s best hope for a medal at next year’s Winter Olympics, retained the IoM Bank-sponsored Sportswoman’s award.

The under-21 male category, sponsored by Aon, was won by British Junior Road Race Champion Peter Kennaugh who accompanied Mark Cavendish in the recent Track World Cycling Championships in Poland.
