Marco Pantani should have been Sports Illustrated Sportsman Of The Year after winning both the Giro and the Tour. It is obvious to me that he was snubbed by S.I. and so the honor given to Lance Armstrong has been tarnished.

Are you sure? Armstrong is class, whearas Pantani is class without the cl. Given that the award isn't all about class and sportsmanship Pantani's a great climber, maybe even a little better than Lance on a good day, but he couldn't beat Lance in a time trial if he was being pulled by a Harley.
What shows me why Armstong is such a great sportsman is that he will often elude to the fact that Jan is a more talented cyclist than himself. Whearas Pantani can't even elude a drug test.

Why have you waited 4 years to tell us that?

Was it a special cycling specific caterory?

Personally I would be pleased that a cyclist, any cyclist won an award like that (especially outside Belgium!!)
