Kirchen Sportsman of the Year

Luxemburg sports press representatives have elected the country's Kim Kirchen as Sportsman of the Year. The 2007 Tirreno-Adriatico and Tour de Suisse runner-up showed a very consistent stage race talent throughout the year and finished seventh overall at the Tour de France.

He snatched the award ahead of Andy Schleck, followed by his older brother and CSC team-mate Fränk Schleck. Gymnast Sacha Palgen took the fourth place. All three cyclists are already qualified for the Beijing Olympics next August.
