Sports Personality contenders
Nicole Cooke
Age: 23 Nationality: Welsh
Sport: Cycling

2006 highlight: Queen of the road.

Cooke has pedalled into new territory for British cycling.

Before Cooke, no man or woman from Britain had even made the top 20 of the world road race rankings, but she topped them.

She reclaimed the individual World Cup crown and led Univega to the team title as well.

Her run included an all-the-way win in the women's Tour de France (La Grande Boucle) plus victory in the Magali Pache, the biggest time trial triumph of her career.
