Well, considering how many races Lance won each year he got his ESPY for Male Athlete Of The Year, Floyd's year would look pretty impressive (IF....if.... if Floyd comes back to win the TdF, that is).
Tour of California
Tour de Georgia
(maybe the TdF)
How many stage races did Lance win in the years he snagged the ESPY's? I can think of the 2004 TdG, but not many more (they may be there, I don't know).... Oh yeah, he snagged Sheryl Crow and became a MASSIVE public figure beyond cycling.... that counts for something in the image-conscious world of glad-handing award shows....
Floyd doesn't need an ESPY.
