If i remember correctly, there was a MTB-weenie last year, who made into the top3 ?
Anyways, my nominations go to:
:edit: now i know who i forgot: Simon and Zakeen for bringing the WW spirit into the pro-peloton!
now to think of who to nominate makes some headache.
i won't comment about the guys we can't vote for, because it's wasted time anyway and they're all such great guys that everyone would deserve the title more than the one who finally gets wwoty 2006.
pk0r:great helpful guy and seems to have tour magazine at home before it gets printed. the bike he built this year really beated all the others.
felix0r:his energy never seems to die, he bought some interesting parts this year, but he worked on far more interesting projects. should change his nickname in the near future to sandman!
zakeen: his results and his new contract speak for his potential.
but his racebike was so great, i know how hard it sometimes is to have something changed when you're in a team. if i come with tune qr, half of the team start "oh, zahner has to have something special, sponsored parts aren't good enough". seeing his parlee with even different front and rear brake, srm, lightweight wheels made me cry because i just wanted this, too. but then i went riding with my ti-screws-tuned fuji wich is not too bad anyway...
sure i've forgotten many, and if i get asked tomorrow, i would probably name 3 other ones, but baby cries now and i'm going to help my wife and make it short:
my vote goes to zakeen because he brought ww'ism into the peloton. and let's hope he gets the title, because then it's his responsability to bring ww'ism into the pro tour!

but I'd like to make an posthumous nomination of "bigfellow" Bill Niko (Singapore) anyway.
Interested in all points of view, always a kind word, never a flame, greatly missed.
Well maybe The wwoty could get the "Bigfellow" WWOTY prize?
He still contributes very valuable information, has been responsible for a great deal of the baddest builds out there and always gives a fair and balance view and has the product experience to back it up.
Even though he does not feel he is worthy, I for one would still like to see he has the opportunity to be voted for.
On another note perhaps we could add a "Rookie of the year" for some one that is new to the forum, that has already made a strong impact and contributed to the forum like;

John consistently pushes the envelope. Carefully analysis of everything out there. However holds a consistent, and out-of-the-box perspective on what he believes. Ti frames and durability are a clear theme.
I enjoy his diary and his useful training tips...as a young aussie cyclist he gives me someone to look up to and support. I don't know how he is with WW parts but really that's not important to me at all.
Hopefully he goes off tap and kicks some Arse with T MOB next year.

I can see the Jerk reading this now and loving the fact that he has just been referred to as a "Rookie". How about it rookie?

Zakeen for his promotion to the Pro Tour and his "Sponsor" Action.
Simon for his information about the Cyclocross and his hard work in the cyclocross-races.
If I have to choose one of them, It will be hard to choose cause they all deserve it.
But if it really needs I will choose: Simon
I have the same thoughts as kuiper, and if I have to choose I chose also for SIMON!
