The best odds available on Nicole Cooke to win the 2006 BBC Sports Personality of the Year award are 50-1.

It's a crying shame.

This year, the Welsh Wonder became the world number one women's road cyclist, secured the Women's World Cup, won the women's version of the Tour de France, the British Road Race Championship, La Flèche Wallonne, the Magali Pache Time Trial, the Castilla y Leon World Cup Race and the Thüringen-Rundfahrt stage race.

And while her most illustrious male counterparts spent the season under a cloud of drug-fuelled suspicion, Cooke rode -- and won -- clean.

She's my sporting hero of the year by a mile.

Here's how to make delicious chocolate covered strawberries. First of all ensure that the strawberries you are intending to use are dry, then allow them to be room temperature warm prior to making them. After the strawberries have been covered in chocolate, put them in your refrigerator to cool, but do not store them in the fridge. Consume within 1-2 days.
